FRANK TURNER PASSING
It is with sadness that we inform MLAANZ members of the passing of Frank Turner on 17 January, aged 73.
Frank was a former long-standing member of the association and former president of the Queensland chapter, and we are sure he will be fondly remembered by many members.
Frank's family have announced a Celebration of Life of Frank will be held on Friday 29 January 2021 at St Lucia Golf Course, Carawa Street, St Lucia, Queensland. The service will commence at 2pm, followed by drinks and the opportunity to tell your favourite story of Frank.
For catering purposes and to comply with the COVID restrictions, anyone wishing to attend please RSVP to the E-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also feel free to send to email@example.com any suitable photos or stories of Frank. All will be greatly appreciated.
The family have respectfully requested no flowers please. If desired, details of where a charitable donation can be made in memory of Frank can be provided.
