Vale Bink Frayne

It is with great saddness that we learned of the passing of one of our long standing members, Bink Frayne.

Bink passed away suddenly on Thursday 28 May 2015 as a result of a heart attack. His smiling face, encouraging comments and friendly conversation will be greatly missed around the club. For many years, Bink has represented Perth Radio Sailing Club in Ten Rater and A Class regattas, both at the club and at State and National Competitions. Getting involved with the IOM was to be his next project in radio sailing.

Bink's other interests in life were his family, of whom he was especially proud, his dogs who often kept him company at the lake, as well as his fly fishing. His commitment to his profession of medicine, and in particular radiology, was a great example to all. Bink was at the forefront of his profession, leaving a terrific legacy for future radiologists. Bink was a great traveller and adventurer. He also participated in his local community, being involved with the local council and in the political arena. He always had the best interests of his community at heart.

At the recent National Championships, Bink didn't sail, but made his boat available to Graham Bantock, so that he could participate. He and Margie looked after Lorna and Graham Bantock, with accommodation, access to their holiday house and a vehicle. This was typical of Bink's generosity and friendship.

The members of PRSC extend our heartfelt condolences to Margie, Libby, Robert, Michael, Sassy and their families. We will miss Binky around the lake.

The following photo was provided by Graham Bantock - a typical Bink Frayne moment - relaxed, smiling, walking the dogs, having a chat.
