My Story


Frank was born in Niagara Falls, ON; he attained his BA in English at Niagara University, N.Y., and his teaching degree at University of Western Ontario.  He moved to Timmins in 1967 to take a position as an English teacher at Timmins High & Vocational School.  During the 33 years  spent there, he taught English. He devoted time to a variety of extra-curricular activities; he was the coach of the Jr. Boys' Basketball team. As well, he served as the Asst.  Head of the English department then ended his career by assuming the headship  of the Library.

He was married for 30 years ; together; he had  two sons  Sean (deceased in 2002), Dan,  and a daughter, Renee.  He was articulate and knowledgeable about sports. He was highly regarded and known as someone who always made time to respond to the needs of his students, fellow teachers,  friends, and    strangers as well ..

Through his superb command of the English language, he was able to make the study of English exciting  for his students.  He set very high standards for both basketball players and  students alike.  He certainly affected the lives of many.
