Franklin Wendell Dickinson
Franklin Wendell Dickinson, oldest son of Iva and Wendell Dickinson ofUpper Woodstock, passed away on July 31st, 2020 at the Carleton Manor in Woodstock. Frank was predeceased by his parents and two of his brothers, Kim Dickinson , Christopher Dickinson and a beloved niece Kelti.
Frank is survived by his remaining siblings, Linda Ferrier of Fredericton; Randy (Karen) Dickinson of Fredericton; Stephen Dickinson of Hartland; Cathy (Craig) McGuire of Newbridge; Wendy (Lyse) Dickinson of Fredericton; as well as a number of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Frank survived a very serious car accident in 1971 but after extensive rehabilitation was able to pursue a career in accounting. He was good with numbers and doing mental arithmetic.
As a result of a bicycle accident many years later, his various disabilities meant he required residential care.
Then in August of 2010, he moved to Carleton Manor where he received excellent care and support. Frank was happy there and was known for always being in a good mood and always complimenting the staff. He knew all of the residents at the Manor as well as their family members and always greeted them when he was driving his wheelchair in the hallways. Frank loved to play bingo especially when he won. In spite of the many health challenges that presented themselves to Frank over the years, our family was very proud of how he met those obstacles. Frank always remained positive. He will be missed!
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Recreation Program at the Carleton Manor in Woodstock or a donation to a disability related charity of their choice.
The funeral arrangements are being handled by the Carleton Funeral Home. However due to the pandemic, there will be no visitation. A graveside service with appropriate social distancing will be officiated by Murray Whitehouse at the Woodstock Rural Cemetery on the Houlton Road on Tuesday, August 4th at 11:00am.
