Frank Slack – RIP (Funeral Arrangements)

Stan Smith has just informed me that Frank Crossed the Bar on Monday 2nd Feb. Frank served in the branch 1965 -1971, and has been a member of the association since 1988.
Our condolences go out to Susan and family.

I served with Frank in the same flight on 848 Commando sqdn. Albion 67-68. A good mate and a dry humorous wit. Last had a drink with him at Tooses funeral.
RIP buddy. Safe harbour.

Details of Funeral arrangements are as follows,Gentlemen. Following the untimely death ( believed to be a massive heart attacking )
of Frank. Just spoke to his Son in Law and the funeral will take place at Blythe Crematorium Monday 13.00, 2nd March. At the moment, it’s family flowers only.

    Shocked to hear about Frank.I was fully expecting to see him at bus station on Friday conning on our way to Chester le Street to meet up with the other members of N.E.Handlers.
    With him recently at Toose’ s funeral,no mention or indication of any illness which makes it
    all the more shocking.I was on same 3’s course 65″.never served with him after that,caught
    up with him at one of early reunions,then as a regular at our N.E.Gatherings.
    Condolences to his Family.
    P.S.unfortunately still unable to see messages posted by other members,hopefully it can be
    sorted soon.Alec.

    Sad sad news again. Far too many good guys crossing the bar. Was on a couple of courses with Frank and his humour was his trademark. RIP Frank and condolences to all the family.

    Shocked to hear of Frank’s passing, I was expecting to meet him on Friday at the next North East chockheads quarterly lunchtime session in Chester le Street.

    I served with Frank on Hermes 1970 – 1971, last saw him at Toose’s funeral a few weeks ago.

    Condolences to Susan and family.
