Vale Frank Bowman
Frank Bowman the leader of our Penrith SIG passed way suddenly in mid-August 2016.
Frank ran the Penrith group from the St Clair High School Computer rooms for many years until the school was lost in a fire at which stage Warren, one of the group members offered his home as a venue. The group has continued to meet there ever since. At our last meeting Frank was unwell but still generated a great discussion. He had finally installed Windows 10 and we discussed the successes and failures in that venture. Last month he won the Trend Micro Maximum Security prize and spoke about its installation.
A great teacher and always available for great tips and advice we will miss him greatly.
Frank Bowman's Funeral Service was held on Friday 2nd September 1:30pm at Leura Memorial Gardens and Crematorium and followed by a Wake at the Grand View Hotel, WentworthFalls.
