Frank passed peacefully at home on March 27th, 2013 surrounded by his loving family. Born in Scotland May 25th, 1926, he immigrated to Canada in 1956. Frank was a professional forester and had planted over 1 million trees in his career, retiring in 1989. Predeceased by his loving wife of 51 years Margaret, three brothers, Matt, Jack, and William. Lovingly remembered by sons Jim, Iain, Innes & daughters in law  Pam and Sandy; daughter Ailsa; eight grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; favourite nephews Gordon and Hamish Wight; and loving partner for the last eight years, Margaret Esson. Frank was an amazing piper and had taught hundreds of students. He was a Highland Games caber tossing champion and lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion. Frank was a decorated WWII veteran with the Scottish Black Watch Royal Highlanders. He served valiantly in the European theater and post war in Greece.

Rest in Peace Dad, we will miss you so, daonnan ar laoch.

H.W. Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre Staff send our condolences to family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

From: Don Herriott
Relation: Worked with Frank.

Deepest sympathies to all of Frank’s family. Frank was my supervisor when I began my career in forestry in the late 1970’s. There is no doubt that Frank was a task master and was set in his ways, but he was completely dedicated to the profession of forestry, and strongly advocated for what be believed. I learned a great deal from Frank and he instilled in me a work ethic that served me well. I look back fondly on those times and enjoyed our discussions, particularly those over tea and toast with Maggie in their home in Port Renfrew.
I also remember how proud Frank was of his children as he spoke of their accomplishments often. He will certainly be missed.

From: Bryan Walli
Relation: Work Colleague

I worked with BC Forest Products 1970s-1980s. In particular I worked along with Frank in Port Renfrew as part of the Forestry Department for several years and then later remained connected during those years following while we all worked with BCFP. Those were fun times. Frank always had considerable passion for the job and there was always lots of humour to share. I can recall several events in Port Renfrew when Frank would pull out the pipes and provide us with some great Scottish flavour.

I wish to express my condolences to the family and friends of Frank. He will be missed.
