Frank Sanders

We post this with great sadness.

We have been told that Franks Sanders passed away at the weekend at his daughter’s house in the Northampton area.

Ann Ainsworth adds: ” I have happy memories of DPQL meetings at Frank ‘s house both before and after Janet, his first wife, died.

“Like John I also remember Frank as an accomplished quiz setter and question master for the Derbyshire Rural Community Council quizzes broadcast on Radio Derby. It was largely down to the network Frank created through that annual event that led to the rapid expansion of the quiz league in its early years.”

And Mike McKenna notes, “Frank was a stalwart of the in-house quiz competition at Rolls-Royce & Associates, with Jock Smith, before the Radio Derby connection.”

We will post more details as we receive them. For the time being we will enable comments to be posted, should you wish to share memories of Frank’s work. Click on the word Comment in green to see comments or to add one. We will try to approve comments as quickly as possible.
