Frank moved to B.C. in the early 50’s, settling in Cranbrook where he worked for BC Tel. He then worked as a lineman for the CPR in the Coquihalla area before there was a highway. In 1956, he moved to Penticton and worked for OK Tel, which later became BC Telephone. Here, he worked for 35 years until his retirement in 1992. While in Penticton, he met Donna and they were married in 1958. They later moved to Kelowna where they raised their family and have lived ever since. Frank is predeceased by his parents and nine siblings.
