VALE FRANK DAVIS
Endeavour (Southern) Region farewells former course leader Frank Davis who passed away in November 2019. Frank led the Creative Writing course for a remarkable period of more than 20 years, from the mid 1990s until 2017, ill health forcing him to resign.
When Endeavour Region was established in 1989 a Writing class was among the first courses to be offered and following the departure of its founder Frank took over the role of Creative Writing course leader and ran the class continuously for the ensuing 20 or more years. He encouraged the efforts of every class member and led by example. In recognition of his contribution to U3A, in 2000 Frank received the Sutherland Shire Council Volunteer of the Year Award.
Among his other sporting interests Frank was a keen bush walker and had some good tales about his walks over the years. He also acquired an extensive knowledge of the early days of white settlement in Australia.
Frank’s long involvement with and contribution to Endeavour U3A will be remembered with gratitude.
