Councillor Frank Huth

FrankCouncillor Frank Huth, has been married to Heather for 36 years and has three grown boys.  He and Heather lived in Mississauga most of their marriage and then the opportunity came for Frank to retire as Logistics Operations Manager and for Heather to work from home. Several years ago they vacationed on Wolfe Lake and made the daily trip into Westport like most area vacationers.  The first time in Westport Frank said to himself that one day he was going to retire here.  The beauty, atmosphere, kind and outgoing people made the decision easy for him and Heather to make a four-hour move from Mississauga.  Looking back, it was a difficult decision to move that far away from family and friends, however, he truly believes it was the right one. Frank is proud to call Westport his home.
