Farewell to Frank Smit (1969G)

"Frank was a tremendous family man"

Frank Smit's wife, Gill, has asked us to make a simple announcement about the circumstances that lead to his passing.  She sent us a note saying:

“Frank had health issues for much of 2021, which made him vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus and he died from chronic Covid pneumonia, leaving behind Gill (to whom he was married since 1977), 3 sons and 4 grandchildren. Frank was a tremendous family man”.

We were sorry to hear that he had experienced such ill health over the past year until his passing on 13 April 2022, and send our deepest condolences to his family.
