Sad news of the passing of a longstanding member of York Art Society, Frank Hodgson, who died in York Hospital last month following a heart attack on June 19th.
Aged 97, Frank had not been active in the society for some years but had always taken great pleasure from his painting which he enthusiastically shared with other artists.
A celebration of his life took place at York Crematorium last week. Frank is survived by his children, Ceri and Gwyn, and grandchildren Kate, Ben, Emma and Alice. The family have suggested the international Sightsavers Charity as a favoured cause if anyone wishes to make a donation in Frank's memory.
