It will be hard to forget Frank Willis.

The OAM, Upper Lachlan Shire councillor of 16 years and long-time rugby league supporter has a legacy of many lasting achievements.

This includes president of the Crookwell Gun Club, recipient of the Paul Harris Rotary Fellowship, an active hospital auxiliary and Citizen of the Year – and more.

Gary Cadwell, lifelong friend and neighbour, described him as the most lovable you could ever meet.

β€œHe had time for everybody and everything and genuinely liked the people and his community. He was an extraordinary man that reached extraordinary heights,” he said.

A graveside service will be held for Frank Willis at Crookwell Lawn Cemetery on May 18 at 11am. He died at the age of 88 in his hometown of Crookwell.
