    Default Frank Ferri (date of service 1952). Death Announcement.

    I joined in order to make older seamen aware of the death of my father, Frank Ferri, born 27th July 1935. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side on 14th September 2022. He joined the training ship TS Dolphin in 1952 and went on to serve on RFA Wave premier where he made friends with Bobby Russell and Eric Johnson. RIP Dad, Craig Ferri.

    Craig,thank you for this notice,and may I offer my sincere condolences to you and the family.
    I didn't know your father ,but my friend Davey ,-and there will be others on here too- remembers Frank from the early years of this site,when he joined in with all the banter and stories,especially his knowlege of the RFA of which he was especially proud to have served with.
    God Bless.



    Graham



    Alfred Tennyson - Crossing The Bar




    Sunset and evening star,
    And one clear call for me!
    And may there be no moaning of the bar,
    When I put out to sea,

    But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
    Too full for sound and foam,
    When that which drew from out the boundless deep
    Turns again home.

    Twilight and evening bell,
    And after that the dark!
    And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;

    For tho' from out our bourn of Time and Place
    The flood may bear me far,
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have crossed the bar.





    RIP Frank

    Hello Craig
    Oh my dear Lord, this is such sad News of your dear Fathers death.
    He was a very long time member of tis site and posted many good Threads as well as replies to other posts!
    I had known Frank (Paco) for many Years through this site, and we were good Friends on site!
    Had a lot of correspondences from him through Facebook as well.
    I myself will surely miss his input here as well as his Friendship.
    So sorry that this is a wee bit late Craig, but with time differences between Australia and there , hope you understand.

    Frank attended a few Re Unions as i recall and i am sure there are other older Members who will miss and remember your dear Dad.

    Stay strong together, and know that he did i know love you all so very much, he was a great Chap!

    My Sincere Condolences to the Entire Family Craig.

    May he now have Gentle Winds to fill his Sails and take him back to those places he so loved in his Heydays!

    Rest in Peace "Paco" i will miss you!
    Sincerely and with Respect


    Frank in his Days on the Warwick Castle, i too was on that Ship but just three Yeras later.

    Doc Vernon

    It was absolutely perfect Doc. I saw my younger brother Paul responded to you. They're great photos.
