Frank later became the proprietor of the St. Charles Hotel in 1889, the Arlington Hotel from 1890 to about 1892, and the Clarence Hotel, from about 1894 to and 1899.

About 1901, he established the Stanley Park Brewery in a house at 725 Chilco Street.

He had the present Clarence Hotel at one time, the building having been put up for him by the late Marquis of Queensbury, and he subsequently opened and operated the Stanley Park Brewery, which is now property of the estate. Mr. Foubert recently leased the brewery to others, and with Mr. J.C. Conlin entered into business as a wholesale merchant at the corner of Pender and Howe streets. The deceased only recently completed a handsome residence at 1544 Barclay street in this city, where his death occurred.”

Simpson, of 1544 Barclay street. For after a night of keen anxiety and lonesome vigil, she read that an unidentified man had dropped dead in Stanley Park, and it needed only a description of the dead man to ascertain that it was her husband, Thomas Simpson, a well-known pioneer of the city. Mrs. Simpson sent her family physician, Dr. Greer, up to the city morgue, where the body had been taken, and Dr. Greer confirmed Mrs. Simpson’s worst fears. Examination of the body by the medical men led to the belief that Mr. Simpson had succumbed to an attack of heart failure, although he had been apparently enjoying good health, and it was not known he was subject to heart trouble. He had been In good health and spirits on Tuesday evening, and after dinner announced his intention of going for a walk in Stanley Park. It was while walking in the park near the zoo that he was stricken. The late Mr. Simpson was aged 58 and was a native of Toronto, having come to Vancouver 33 years ago, and resided here continuously ever since. He was very well known to and popular with all the pioneers of the city, and had been on the staff of the first five department stores in the city. The funeral will take place from Center & Hanna’s undertaking rooms, Georgia street, at 2:30 o’clock on Friday afternoon.”
