When we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that you have an angel to watch over you now. We extend our most sincere condolences to you during this difficult time.
My deepest sympathy to Aunt Donna, Ian, Peg and their families.
You are all in my thoughts at this sad time.
Donna, Ian, Peggy and family, we were so sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. We have some wonderful memories of times spent with you in Bayfield and even more from working with Frank. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Lynda and I are out of the country and unable to attend on Feb 13, however, we will be thinking of you.

My sincerest condolences to the family. As a former colleague and friend, Frank’s “true gentleman”, “learned mentor” and “respected professional” manners will never be forgotten.
Sincere Sympathy to Donna, Ian, Peggy and families.
So sorry to hear about Frank’s passing.Looked forward to his visit when he
Came home to N.S.With love from Margie Schmitt(Henderson)
Frank’s 1st cousin.
Our thoughts are with you at this most difficult time. I have very fond memories of Frank (“Charlie Brown”) and Donna with visits at Go Home and in Mississauga. I regret not being able to attend but living in Alberta makes it impractical at this time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during this trying time. Frank was a great mentor and friend of Bryan’s. We became fast friends and spent many enjoyable times in Bayfield, Dundas, Canmore and Sciamous. Frank always had that little glint in his eye and could win anyone over in a heartbeat. He will be forever in a special place in our hearts. His expertise will be missed. We think they broke the mould.
I was very sorry to hear that Frank had passed away. As a former colleague, I had a lot of respect for him. as a person and as an engineer. My sincere condolences to the family
Our heartfelt payers and sympathy go out to Donna, Ian and Peggy and their families. WE have many happy memories of Frank and Donna and the children at Bayfield.
I worked with Frank for all my time with Westinghouse, and was impressed by his knowledge and his humor, It was an honour to have known him.
Vaya con Dios Frank.
Thinking of the Barnard family at this difficult time. So sorry to hear of Franks passing. I worked with a Frank and loved his sense of humour and have many fond memories. We extend our sincere condolences to Donna, Peggy and Ian, Shana and the boys! You are all in our thoughts at this difficult time.

I wish to extend my heartfelt sympathy to Frank’s family and friends. Frank was well-known and well-respected amongst his extended “hydro family”. I remember our first meeting many, many, many years ago and how amazed I was that such an intelligent man could simplify his answers for a wet-behind-the-ears operator like me! Many of the Westinghouse drawings we look at today still have the A.F. Barnard signature in the title block!
Our sincere condolences to your family at this time, Frank was for a long time a wonderful dock partner at Bayfield and such a gentleman. He will be missed by all who knew him.
The tide recedes but leaves behind
bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle
warmth still lingers on the land.
The music stops, and yet it echoes
on in sweet refrains…..
For every joy that passes,
something beautiful remains.
May your wonderful memories remain forever and gradually replace the empty space left behind by this wonderful man. Our thoughts & prayers are with the whole family at this time.
Condolences from all of IEEE Canada. It was a pleasure meeting Frank, and we will miss him.
So sad to hear about Frank’s death. We will always miss his smiles and cheer at our Annual Thanksgiving Gathering. Our kindest thoughts to all of the family. ~Linda & Don
