It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Frank Aldrich. Frank was a long time resident of Lake Gaston Estates. He was 89 years old.
Frank was a friend and neighbor to so many. I'm sure we will all miss seeing his green golf cart pulling up in our driveway for a friendly visit, to see if we needed anything, to lend a hand or to just sit and share a beer. Frank was what a neighbor should be. He cared about us all.
Frank's daughter is making her way to NC from Michigan. If there is information to pass along regarding any arrangements, they will be updated here and on the Lake Gaston Estates Socials and News Facebook page.
Please keep Frank in your thoughts and prayers. He will be sorely missed.
