Frank began playing croquet a few years after his wife Lyn. They have travelled around attending many tournaments and clubs in their "Croquet Years" together. Frank was a valued member of our club, he was so knowledgeable in many different aspects, always willing to help, mentor new players or even teach anyone who asked his opinion.
Frank was a qualified Referee, our club's No. 1 Player (handicap of 1), Championship winner of both Horsham Club and Wimmera Croquet Association. He was still playing croquet (although with difficulty) until a couple of months ago.
Frank will be missed by us all and The Horsham Croquet Club gives our condolences to Lyn, Michelle, Chris and family.
