Frank Golder was an auto mechanic and bodyman by trade having owned and operated his own business on the Island and in Espanola, Ontario for many years. He loved to work alongside his son restoring and bringing life back to older models. He was respected in his trade by all who worked alongside him. Frank was an avid golfer and loved getting out on the course especially with his brothers Hazen and Colin and his son-in-law Vito. He and Anne were regulars at their local course and having enjoyed golfing where ever they traveled and lived. His unique sense of humour, that laugh, those blue eyes and caring unassuming personality will be missed by all. “It was always a fun time when Frank visited”. Final arrangements have been entrusted to the Innisfil Funeral Home. As per Frank’s wishes there will be no official Funeral Service. His ashes will be laid to rest alongside his late brother Herbie on Manitoulin Island with a Graveside Service and Celebration of Life at a later date to be announced.
