Frank was an industrious cattleman in his ‘hay-day’ and with his family at Earnscliffe Angus Farm, they thrived at producing successful Aberdeen Angus cattle. Frank received P.E.I. Agrologist Award, Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame Award, 4-H Appreciation Award and recently his family was honoured with the 50-year award from the Canadian Angus Association. Most of all, Frank enjoyed his family and his life and he was well known for his humour and his enjoyment with his many community, cattle and horse friends. His ‘stories’ and his ‘hearty laugh’ will be missed. Over the past year, Frank was cared for with kindness at the Garden Home.
