** Blogger's Note: The Lincoln Heights Community, LAPD and the Los Angeles Neighborhood Council System lost a longtime advocate with the unexpected Passing Away of Frank Wada at the Age of 62. According to longtime fellow Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council Member Ben Wadsworth ........, "I received a phone call at 3:30 AM this morning and told of the death of Frank Wada, a graduate of LHS Class of 1973, one of my former students, and my great friend. Frank had been a member of the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council since its inception. He was also one of the founding members of the Lincoln Heights Dollars for Scholars foundation. Further information as I receive it. He will be missed by all. WADS". This blogger will remember meeting Frank Wada as a Lincoln High School Key Club President and Associate Student Government President in the early 1980s under the guidance of now retired KeyClub/Student Government Coordinator Ben "Wads" Wadsworth. Since graduating in 1973, Frank had been a constant presence in the Lincoln Heights Civic Community, involving himself with the likes of Kiwanis, the Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce and helping with the creation of the LHNC. Community members will also remember Frank's longtime avocation for the Los Angeles Police Department, dedicating countless of volunteer hours at neighborhood events and as a member of the LAPD Hollenbeck Division community Police Advisory Board (CPAB). Frank's persona, which was heavy on listening ......, and concise on commentary, will be miss by the Lincoln Heights Community. Our prayers and condolences go out to the Wada Family at this time of Great Loss----Scott Johnson.
