So sorry to hear of the passing of Frank Pike. I had the honour of meeting with him a few years ago regarding a story for The Telegram about his brother who served in the Second World War and who died in England. I remember Frank as a kind man with a gentle smile, who took time not only to share his thoughts on the story I was doing, but to show me the beautiful models he built as a hobby. Condolences to his family and friends. Glen Whiffen

Condolences on the passing of Father Frank as we referred to him. Many fond memories from our Calgary Street Days.
Aunt Rhoda, Debbie, Vickie and families. Deb and I are thinking of you at this time. Uncle Frank had a good run, and we both have fond memories of him. Our only regret is that we could not get home to NL these past couple of years to see him one more time. I remember the basement in your home on Darling St. was full of candies and cookies for his business. Also, his knuckle grinding hand shakes. Quiet spoken, but there was always a bit of mischief in his eyes and a smile on his face. We will you miss you Uncle Frank.
My deepest sympathy to you all. Frank was a lovely, caring, gentleman and so full of fun. Cherish your memories.
