Frank Doran Jr – A Bootle Buck RIP

I have known Frank for many years as a work colleague and as a fellow activist in the trade union movement. I have always counted Frank as a personal friend.

Sadly, Frank has died after a struggle against cancer. I will miss him terribly. I will miss his humour, his kindness and his company. Bootle Football Club have lost someone who has devoted many years to it.

Frank had a mind open to ideas from others and he was far from being a dogmatic trade unionist who always thought our trade union was in the right. Indeed, he often seemed to share my concerns about the direction of the trade union movement; a subject we would often debate.

A life used to help others less fortunate than himself, a life that we can celebrate. I am glad to have known Frank Doran Jr.
