Frank, one of the club’s vice presidents, died yesterday in a Redcar Nursing Home. Not sure of his exact age but I can remember piling into a Stokesley cafe after a Sunday Club Run when I was about 16 for his 40th ‘birthday party’ and that was 41 years ago!
He was one of the first members of the club back in 1958 and has been a club member ever since, held various club positions, organised races, was part of the Spokesman team in early years, however the support he gave for us youngsters in the early part of my cycling career was immense more so after my brother was killed. He also raced although he packed in racing in the late 1970’s. He became a keen photographer and regularly won the CTC photographer trophy.
Funeral details will be posted once they are known.
