Sad to report — FRANK DAILEY PNP –Triste en reportarles

My heart is sad and heavy this morning as I report on the passing of Frank Dailey, Past National President of the Society of American Magicians.  Frank served as Most Illustrious President of the Society of American Magicians from 1983 to 1984.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret Dailey who also served as Most Illustrious President of the S.A.M. and had the distinction of being the first female President of the Society.

Frank continued to serve magic and the Society until recently and you would find him at conventions snapping photos with his constant companion, his camera.  Photos he took were generously shared with anyone who asked for them.

Word has come from several sources of Frank’s passing, including from daughter Shannon who reports that he passed away peacefully at home in his sleep during the afternoon of Wednesday, March 21.

The magic world, the Society of American Magicians and all of us who knew him are all the poorer for his loss.  May he rest in peace. 

Mi corazón está triste y pesado esta mañana al informarles sobre el fallecimiento de Frank Dailey, Ex Presidente Nacional de la Sociedad Americana de Magos. Frank se desempeñó como Presidente más ilustres de la Sociedad Americana de Magos desde 1983 hasta 1984. Le precedio en la muerte su esposa, Margaret Dailey quien también se desempeñó como presidente más ilustre de la SAM y tuvo la distinción de ser la primera mujer presidenta de la Sociedad.

Frank continuó sirviendo a la magia y la Sociedad hasta hace poco y se le podria encontrar en las convenciones tomando fotos con su compañero constante, su cámara. Fotos que tomó fueron compartidas generosamente con cualquier persona que le preguntó por ellas.

La noticia proviene de varias fuentes del fallecimiento de Frank, entre ellos de su hija Shannon, quien nos informa que falleció pacíficamente en su casa mientras dormía durante la tarde del miércoles 21 de marzo.

El mundo de la magia, la Sociedad Americana de Magos y todos nosotros los que lo conocimos somos más pobres por su pérdida. Que descanse en paz.
