TECHNICIAN FIFTH CLASS FRANK L. DICKINSON was born July 18, 1925 to Rhea and Leroy  Dickinson of 214 South Boulevard, Gloucester City NJ. He had graduated from the Gloucester City High School in 1942 and had worked in the editorial department of the Camden Courier-Post. He was inducted into the Army in 1944 and went overseas in January of 1945, as a member of an Ordnance Bomb Disposal Squad. In a letter home he had wrote that he had been through Belgium and Holland before coming to France, where he was killed on February 27, 1945, when the truck he was riding in struck a rut in the road near Thronvill, France. 

He was survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Dickinson, and a sister, Edith. After the war, Frank Dickinson was brought home, and he was buried in Cedar Grove Cemetery in Gloucester City NJ in 1949. His father passed away during a hunting trip on December 15, 1951.
