Frank Henry McArthur October 14, 1935 to April 8, 2022 Frank passed away at Michael Garron Hospital. He was predeceased by his sister Gladys (Buster McDermott), he leaves behind his son Scott (Susanne MacDonald) and son Darrin (Sally Ann Corcoran) and his only granddaughter Brodie (Justin) plus his ex wife Bernice Ashford (now Ufnal). He grew up as a boy in Cabbagetown, moving to Weston in his teens, and later moved to Pickering where his sons were born. He graduated from Ryerson and went on to work as an advertising executive, notably for Nestle Canada with a brief stint in their New York office in the seventies. He returned to Toronto as a Vice President in coffee marketing to round out the decade. He bought a home on the Beaches boardwalk in 1982 where he spent his latter 40 years. He cherished the beach and enjoyed many hours sunning himself on the sand in his earlier days. He was a long term Lions member, a one time President of the Kew Gardens Tennis Club, was an avid bowler, and worked in the Real Estate business prior to retiring in his house overlooking the boardwalk. He loved parties and would enjoy discussions and debating topics of the day. He was a voracious reader of newspapers, magazines and books - he loved sports and may have several TV’s on in addition to radio at the same time. He will be sadly missed by family and friends alike. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date, details will be made available.
My sincere condolences to you in your loss of Frank. I enjoyed discussions with him at Lions meetings and events as well as when down at the waterfront. He is missed. Ironically I learned at the Easter Parade on Sunday that he had passed away. The photo shows how much he loved the parade!

Darrin and Scott,
It was always fun to watch an Argo game with Frank. His commentary always made the game a little more enjoyable.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
