SHERWOOD, Frank Ernest - Our family is deeply saddened to announce the passing of Frank on Friday morning, February 10, 2012. Devoted and loving husband of Stella (Barrett), a wonderful father to Paul (Faith), Glenn (Janice), grandfather to Ben, Sarah, Lisa, Amanda, and great-grandfather to Victoria, Paige, Hannah and Coleton. Dad was born in 1918 in Saskatchewan, raised on farms both out west and in Southern Ontario, then to British Columbia where he enlisted in the Canadian Army at the start of the Second World War and served with pride and honor as a First Lieutenant. Frank's career in business began immediately after the end of the war, where his natural talents in design, innovation and creativity guided him as he launched and ran one of the most premier design and build firms in North America, Frank Sherwood Limited. Frank and Stella originally retired to Southampton and then 25 years ago moved to live in Owen Sound, returning full circle in their life, to the place where they had met and embarked on their long and loving marriage. Frank shall truly be missed by all those whose lives he touched, as a true and remarkable gentleman. Family and friends were joined for visitation at the Breckenridge Ashcroft Funeral Home, 241 9th Street West, Owen Sound, on Monday, February 13, 2012 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. A Memorial Service for Frank followed at 1:00 p.m. If desired, a donation in Frank's memory may be made to the charity of your choice.
