His chosen family, Tim & Sharyn Sargent, Stephynie, Bruce, Daniel, Melyssa and Benjamin will miss his wit and mentorship.

Frank was always a hard worker, and loved to work with young people, instilling that work ethic on the next generations. His world famous Enniskillen Jersey herd was a testament to his hard work. Frank spent many years as the chief Canadian exporter of Jersey cattle to many different continents. Known as “Mr. Canada” he judged cattle in many countries and was often called on for his immense knowledge in the Jersey industry.
