It is with a heavy heart I inform the House of the passing of a local legend in our community, Dr Francis Clement Chapman. Dr Chapman, or Dr Frank as he was endearingly known, passed away on Tuesday 12 May at around 4.00 a.m. He was 88 years of age. They were certainly 88 years packed with joy, passion and achievement. Frank was born in Taree. He attended Taree High School and The Shore School in Sydney. He was a gifted musician who played the violin. He excelled in maths and science. Upon leaving school in 1950, he placed in the top 20 in the State.
