Todd Frankland on Dealin With The Devil, his 47-foot Fountain.
A longtime poker run enthusiast and well-known member of Performance Boat Club of Canada, Todd Frankland died last week of undisclosed causes. He was 56 years old.
According to club president Meghan Brousseau, Frankland was a “terrific supporter” of the nonprofit club who kept Dealin With The Devil, his 47-foot Fountain powerboat, in the Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada area. In addition to being a frequent participant in performance-boating events in Canada, Frankland ran his 47-footer in poker runs in Florida, particularly in the early 2000s, and was a regular attendee at the annual Super Boat International Key West Offshore World Championships in November.
“Todd’s untimely passing has left a big hole in a lot of hearts,” said Brousseau. “He will be remembered for his generosity, kindness, tireless energy, infectious laugh and constant twinkle in his eye.”
“Our sincere condolences go to Todd’s family and to everyone lucky enough to call him friend,” she added. “Rest in peace.”
Frankland is survived by his wife of 38 years, Lori; son, Ryan, and daughter-in-law, Lisa; and grandsons Carson and Austin.
