The Capilano Rugby Club has lost a true friend and supporter. Frank, as Director of Parks and Recreation for West Vancouver was instrumental in designation of Klahanie Park as the home field and Clubhouse location for the CRC. Frank along with then West Vancouver Mayor, Derek Humphries provided the logistical and political stickhandling that allowed the Club to create a home park with full facilities in the early 1980s.
Frank, quick to smile and with his sense of humor, he was an accomplished runner, and relentless in his encouragement of physical well-being, community involvement and sport leadership. Frank’s festy and engaging spirit is akin to the rugby club he tirelessly helped find its grounding.
That association, as Klahanie, will live on.
Our sympathies to his family, all those who will dearly miss him.
