The Choiseul Icon, Cecil Allan Frank, who was born on January 12, 1924 and died May 8, 2009 had a massive turn out at his funeral service which was held at the Catholic Church on Saturday May 16, 2009 at 2:00 pm.
The service was attend by the Prime Minister, Hon. Stephenson King, Hon. Kieth Mondesir, Hon. Leonard Montoute, Senator Dr. Nicholas Frederick, The Leader of the Opposition, Dr. Kenny Anthony as well as many of Mr. Frank's family and friends. Noticeably absent was The Parliamentary Representative,who according to his Ministerial office is out of state on Government business. However he was represented by a small contigency.The Church was packed to capacity with many persons standing outside. Members of the family occupied the front pews as clear evidence of their sorrow masked their faces.
The Service took the form of a mass and lasted almost two hours. The Eulogy was moved by Mr. Jimmy Haynes a well known person in the community. Prayers were offered by the Children among them Sophia Cox.
The Casket draped with a white veil was well vanished to a deep glossy brown colour.
The burial took place at Industry on the deceased estate. Only members of the family were allowed into the enclosed personal cemetary while a huge crowd looked on from outside the fenced area. This Son of the soil will be surely missed.
