Frank was the last living member of his ten siblings, and will be missed dearly by his sisters-in-law Blanche Peck (Warren), Pat Richie (Ronald) (2014), and Joy Monk (Gerry). He is also survived by brother-in-law Glenn Richie (Margaret) (2002), and by several nieces, nephews, and cousins. As a young man, our father loved to be outdoors and enjoyed fishing, hunting, gardening, horse racing, and digging for artifacts on the family farm. Frank was an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan, and was often found on his front porch on Park Lane, Tilbury listening to the voice of Ernie Harwell while enjoying the Detroit Tigers baseball game.
