Eric Frame: Firm, fair man
By LEIGH PRITCHARD
HIGHLY decorated and former long-serving prison officer Eric Cameron Frame will be remembered as a firm but fair man, his son, Michael said.
Mr Frame, holder of the sword of honour for exemplary service to the Department of Corrective Services, was farewelled at a funeral on Friday.
At his father's funeral, Michael said: "He was someone who was quiet and reserved but was outspoken about doing the right thing."
Mrs Kathleen Frame said her husband joined the Correc- tive Services Department in 1940 and progressed through the ranks until he was made governor (superintendent) at Grafton jail in 1970. He and Kathleen stayed in Grafton after his retirement in 1976.
"He was very fond of his children and grandchildren and they returned that love," Mrs Frame said.
Mr Frame was a director of the Grafton District Services Club and was honoured with life membership. He also was awarded the Australian National Medal from the Federal Government, and the Meritori- ous Service Medal.
