FRAWLEY, Frank Jerry
Born Aug. 25, 1939 in Calgary into a family of printers, Frank passed away on Dec. 4, 2011 after a full and active life. He spent almost his entire career at Morriss Printing Co. in Victoria but moved to Parksville in 1999, thoroughly enjoying his retirement. Seldom sick a day before his short battle with cancer, Frank leaves behind a large family: his loving wife Donna; children Kathy, Mike (Jacquie), Russ (Rachel), Keith (Tonia), Brandie; grandchildren Aaron (Jana), Jody, Alec, Marc, Hanna, Paige, Michaila, Liam, Taylor, Noah, Piper and 2 great grandchildren, a large extended family, plus his 2 beloved cats Kymmie and Koko. He also leaves behind many friends in Victoria and Parksville who will miss his kindness and wicked baseball game.
Frank played in the Parksville Senior Athletic Group league for 10 years and was the team captain, organizer and helped with everything that came up. In addition, he and his best friend Marv started a 55+ team, the Breakers, who are still going strong and have been successful at the Senior games, winning a silver medal at the 2007 games in Nanaimo. Next they started up a 70+ team and won gold at the 2009 games in Richmond. Frank was a leader in both of these ventures. Frank also played on a 60+ team that medaled in the Cowichan senior games, and was active with the Panters senior hockey group, helping with score keeping and tournament banquets.
In general, when something needed to be done, he was the guy to call on.
At his request, there will be no memorial service. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Frank, you will be missed.
