Frank was employed by Baycoat Ltd. in Stoney Creek, Ontario prior to his retirement in 1993 and in 1994 he and his wife moved from Ontario to Gaspereau Forks which they greatly enjoyed together. Frank really enjoyed being with his family, his brothers and sisters, his visits from his friends, especially Wayne who came faithfully each week and his daily walks and trips to town with his buddy Gerald and his trips to Portage Vale to spend the week-end with his cousin Howard. He loved being able to do lots of fishing for brook trout and hunting with his friends each year and spending time in his gardens. He was a devout Toronto Maple Leaf fan for his entire life and never gave up on them although he was teased a lot for his stand.
