Letters: Goodbye to a Great Guy


Gloucester City lost one of its proudest adopted sons on June 29, 2008. Frank Banas, former high school teacher and football coach has passed away.

  If you were lucky enough to have been a student or player of his, you have got to be a better person for that relationship.

  Frank loved the City of Gloucester, the High School and the thousands of students and players that he befriended.

  Frank was a throwback, a meat and potatoes kind of guy, who you loved immediately and he retuned the favor.

  There was no bravado in Frank, he was solid, honest, sincere and one hellava friend. Gloucester has sadly lost one of its good guys.
