In the fall of 1946 he entered Nova Scotia Agricultural College and graduated at the head of his class. He was awarded the Governor General's Medal, and completed his degree in agriculture at McGill University in the spring of 1950. Following graduation in 1950, he started a highly successful career with the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture. A highly competent, professional administrator and organizer, Frank held a wide range of positions, including instructor at N.S.A.C. inspector of co-operatives, head of the marketing branch, director of marketing, as well as being an assistant to the deputy minister. He also found time to complete his Masters of Agricultural Economics at the University of Maine in 1965. He retired from the department in 1977 after a long and distinguished career. For some years after retirement, he and his wife Isobel traveled to various vacation places in Great Britain and Continental Europe. As time passed, they spent many happy vacations in beautiful Cape Breton and Newfoundland.

Frank was the last surviving member of his immediate family.
