Frank was a charismatic and out-going person, always up for new experiences and meeting new people.
Originally from Greenock in the West of Scotland, Frank (or Wallace) moved South as a young man.
Throughout his life he loved music, playing the guitar and singing from an early age. Not a day went by without hearing him sing. Lately he developed an interest in acapella singing firstly through barbershop choruses and quartets and then mixed groups. He also dabbled in more classical groups and enjoyed performing at the Fringe in the Fens.
he wasn’t making music, he was listening to it. Almost every week he
would watch some live music from proms concerts at the Albert Hall to
Open Mic nights in local pubs where a further attraction was the
presence of real ale!
Another enduring interest was his love of the water and boating. Every holiday involved some water based activity – sailing, canoeing, rowing or motor boating. He even tried white-water rafting for the first time when he was almost 60!
As well as
hobbies, Frank had a full and dynamic work-life taking on projects in a
wide variety of areas both in the UK and Europe. Frank worked hard to
master many topic areas from cybersecurity to cross border emergency
response coordination. Through his work he made many lasting
friendships and had lots stories to tell about his experiences.
Frank is greatly missed by his family and wide circle of friends and colleagues.

A Personal Message
Frank was my life partner for 32 years – we got married after 13 years together in the year 2000. I miss him everyday, especially in the early morning when I remember with a jolt that he is no longer here. I miss being able to talk to him about my day, sharing jokes and new experiences and making plans for our future together.
He is also missed by our two children, his two children from earlier relationships, his grandchildren, siblings, nephews and nieces. Everyone has been shocked and devastated by his unexpected death.
