Frank, you were my vice principal, my friend and my best friend's dad which made you my dad because we all share the same parents. My biggest memory of you was diving into the swimming pool at Somerton and you came up at the other end. You were so tall. It was like you were half the size of the swimming pool but I was only 5 at the time. Thank you for letting me into your family. Luv and hugs always. From Trudy

Our condolences to you all. We will always remember the warmth, kindness and generosity Frank showed us when we stayed in Adelaide with Frank and Von. He proudly showed off his wine cellar, fed us well at the markets and we were stoked to see him driving the tourist train in the mall. We since enjoyed hearing many recounts ftom Emily and Rob detailing Frank's dedication to his family as a loving grandfather, very much involved in activities with Edward and Lucy. A truly wonderful man.

John Quinn -

Frank came into our lives when Von was visiting her many ‘relies’ in the Northern Hemisphere. He quickly integrated into our family becoming loved and respected and sharing experiences and stories over a glass of wine or two. He had a wealth of experience a was a font of knowledge and it was always a pleasure to be in his company. As usual it is a pity that we weren’t able to spend more time together. RIP Frank from all the Quinn’s.
