Bob Grant emailed “I was sad to learn of Frank Donovan’s passing on the 6thMarch.I was Manager Operations when Frank was Area Manager, Moonee Ponds. He was a thorough gentleman and a great boss. He married late in life to Mary, and I know that they had a least one child, a son. He loved the farm at Kilmore, and it is good to know that he had such a long and fruitful life. Lindsay Baglin was the Lending Manager at Moonee Ponds Area in Frank’s time, and it is good to see his name appearing in the March Birthday list. Have a good one Lindsay. Sorry to hear of the recent passing of Trevor Cookson, who was an Accountant at one of the branches in the Moonie Ponds Area during my time there, and Bob Stamps who I knew through cricket. As others have said Bob was a very good bowler and a champion guy. It was always great to be in his company. ”Frank Valastro emailed “I read in the last newsletter of the passing of Frank Donovan at the age of 99 years. I remember Frank fondly as my mentor when he was Area manager at Moonee Ponds Area. I was his Senior Advance Officer at the time and Frank taught me many tricks of the trade in gaining good business opportunities, many of which I used when I went on to become a manager in my own right. Vale Frank Donovan. “
