Sadness over the passing of Frank King

Post Date: Thursday, May 10, 2018

I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Frank King. Modern Calgary bears many of Frank’s fingerprints. His passion and selfless commitment to our city and Calgarians resulted in the sports and athletic legacy that has become an intrinsic part of who we are. He was a booster (in all the best sense of the word) and an inspiration. He understood the potential of our city and fought hard to make it a reality. Personally, I’m so grateful to Frank for his friendship and advice. He was incredibly generous with his time and lessons from his amazing lifetime of experience. He’ll be well-missed and never forgotten.
