I pay tribute to Frank Hodges, a fabulous and well‑loved teacher from Hazelbrook Public School, a member of my community, a good family man, a cricket enthusiast, and a Labor man.
I express my condolences to his family and our community on his loss in the middle of July.
Frank was a true believer. He was a comrade.
He was a very kind and generous member of our community. He had a very positive impact on so many people's lives.
I will always treasure memories of branch meetings at which he asked many probing questions and his good humour.
To Damien, Mel and the rest of his family I express my condolences.
