  3. Dear Frank, I will never forget the great things you did for us when we were kids. The fishing, hunting, paddling the “Dab Chick” boat you built and riding in the back of the DKW car.
    A wonderful man who will always be remembered.

  4. Sincere Condolences to Mark and Trevor and families. Your father was my Dads “Right hand man”‘ on the farm at Thorpdale and was very much a part of our family. I was fortunate to catch up with Frank at the last Thorpy Potato festival.. He will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.

  7. To my big brother dying so suddenly was something I had not expected as we had only had a cuppa and a long chat the week before. Since then I have reflected on my childhood we really had some fun times, fishing either on the surf, boat (I mainly supplied the berley or you made me push the boat when the tide went out, you never mentioned the sharks that may have been there), creek or fox hunting till all hours of the night, where you would turn the light out and run off, leaving me floundering in the dark. One thing that still makes me laugh was when we coaxed the mouse out from under the couch and you jumped on it and it ran up the inside of your trouser leg never knew you could do such a jig. We definitely had some adventures, some times I wonder how I survived. Even with all of the fun, at times we also clashed heads, but that was all part of growing up even as we got older. Will miss you always, glad you are back with Peg. Lots of love Helen your little sister.

  9. Uncle Franz, you are the only person we know that could have us convinced that a little man actually lived in your pocket?
    So many fond memories of you while we grew up it’s hard to even know where to start with the stories, you will be missed.
