Grandson, Brendon Hilton says his grandfather left behind a legacy for the family.

“Granddad was rare, an amazing selfless man who dedicated his life to serving others. He unassumingly taught my siblings and i a lot about life, challenging us to strive for the core values that he held dear and that made the greatest generation worthy of their name. He lived by example.”

Deputy Speaker Veena Bhatnagar, Minister for Women and Children Mereseini Vuniwaqa and Permanent Secretary Dr. Joseva Koroivueta were present at the event.

Frank was known as the ‘Father of special education’ in Fiji and his work had boosted a network of schools, which cater for children with disabilities.
