Frank and Mary Glenfield were two of the founding members of Walterdale Theatre Associates, then known simply as Theatre Associates. Their involvement with Walterdale embraces the entire 53 year life of the company, from 1958 to 2011. Frank has the distinction of being the individual who has directed more plays at Walterdale than any one else, and at all three versions of Walterdale Playhouse. […] The Walterdale family will miss Frank, his knowledge, and his entirely genuine and so generously shared love for all things “theatre”. To Mary, David and Jane, we offer you our heartfelt condolences, and our great gratitude in knowing this true gentleman of the theatre.
