About Frank 's Life

It is with deepest sorrow that we mourn the passing of Frank Laporte at the young age of 73.

Frank was born on the 5th August 1948 and sadly passed away on the 4th December 2021 with his loving wife by his side.

He was a devoted, caring and a loving husband to the one true love in his life Joan,

A proud loving father to Mark, Tracey and Marissa,

And an outstanding grandfather to all his grandchildren  Tricia, Georgie, Jack, Daniel, Brooke, Riley and Summer, and continued being just as amazing to his Great grandchildren Bailey, Everleigh and Amirah.

His devotion, dedication and love was felt by all around him, and he will be forever sadly missed by all his family and friends.

Due to diabetes and a further illness, Frank lost his sight for the last 5 weeks of his life, although this was a struggle for him, he continued to fight for not only himself but for the ones he loved, but sadly lost his fight.

He will always be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers forevermore……
