Car Community & City of Canby lose a great man in
It’s with great sadness for both our hobby, and me personally that I share the passing of Frank Cutsforth on November 2nd. Frank was truly a special man who loved his family, his community, his customers, our hobby, and baseball. He was just a special person to know and be associated with.
A true community icon with his Thriftway store in Canby, no one gave back more to their community. He loved putting on the annual car show, which began in 1995, and was always looking at ways to make it bigger and better. We had numerous conversations, and he was always talking about all of his great volunteers, and how they made the show great. Each year he would call me the week after and ask for a critique. Which was easy, it was always a great show. He also talked constantly about his family and how much they meant to him, and drove him to be the man he was.
But what I will is miss most about Frank, will be our conversations about baseball. A love we both shared. When he came to my home to see my memoribilia, he brought me a book about the 100 greatest players. Each week we would talk about the rankings, and how we both agreed about the inclusion of Ichiro Suzuki, and finally a book that had Willie Mays #1.
Our last conversation was of course about how he could make the annual car show even better. He was always thinking about making it better for everyone else.
Frank will truly be missed, and I’ve lost someone whom I truly considered special.
Thoughts and prayers to Franks family. And God speed my friend.
