So sad. The partner of an old colleague of mine used to run a restaurant at Aireys Inlet. Frank and Shirley were regulars and would always leave huge tips, and were apparently the nicest customers you could imagine.
Of course, his contribution to our on field success from 2007 onwards was as significant as anyone else.
This sad news really puts things into perspective. Sure we are all disappointed with what happened against the Swans, but the club lives on and Frank is a big reason as to why that's even possible. Rest in Peace to a man etched in the very fabric of our great club.
Not only one of the best club presidents the Cat's has ever had (if not the best), but he was a stalwart of the Geelong community in general and did a lot for the people and the city he loved. Not to mention the times he helped the GFC financially over the years. RIP Frank Costa.
