Suddenly at Avalon Care Centre, Orangeville on Tuesday, May 5th, 2020. Caring brother to Ida (the late Pete) Gibson, Hugh (Carmen) Linton, Beth Attwood, Gladys Stoneham and the late Harold Linton. He leaves memories of his laid back nature, his love of sports and family reunions. He is survived by eleven nieces and nephews, eighteen great nieces and nephews and two great great nieces. Frank was predeceased by his parents and nephew Gregory Gibson.
Frank was born to Charles and Christina Linton on June 13, 1949 at Creemore, Ontairo. He grew up on a farm at Lavender and attended Dufferin District High School in Shelburne. In 1964 as a cadet he was awarded the Legion trophy for sharpshooting and for best dressed cadet. His work experience included working on a number of Dufferin area farms, in the mines of norther Ontario, and as a plumber apprentice. After receiving an accidental injury at the age of twenty that hospitalized him for a year, he went on to take carpentry courses at Georgian College. Most of his life was spent in Barrie working with various construction companies. Later in life he was a security guard on the Barrie waterfront. Frank enjoyed playing darts in competitive leagues, sketching historical Barrie buildings, operating his small woodworking shop on Anne Street and capturing with his camera the many parades, and outdoor celebrations over the years.
Cremation has taken place. A family and friends memorial service will be arranged for later this summer. Please visit www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca to express condolences and/or make a donation in memory of Frank to a charity of your choice.
