Frank Dunlop - RIP

The more longstanding members of the Burrator Fly Fishers will remember Frank Dunlop who was a member for many years and who left early in 2013 when he and his wife Jess left the area after more than forty years living in Plymouth.They moved to Bourne in Lincolnshire to be near to their son and his family. As a BFF member Frank was a persistently cheerful fellow, well liked and very good company. He was also a hard working man. Despite being over eighty he still plied his trade as a podiatrist on a part time basis and ran a weekly service for older ladies who relied on him to deal with their corns and bunions.

I was very sad to hear that he passed away on Monday last as a result of  domestic accident in his garage at his new home in Lincolnshire. It seems he was taken to hospital in Peterborough by emergency ambulance but did not survive. On  behalf of the club I have sent a condolence card to his wife and family. Here are a couple of pictures of Frank from his Burrator days:
