      The following appears on the Addenbury website (found Sep 2009);
      Francis Minter, resident in the village for some 35 years, died at his home Tithe Barn House on 27 September. Frustrated by illness during the latter part of his life he overcame his disability with the dedication of his wife Barbara and a remarkable display of courage and determination. With scooter and walking aids he became an object lesson in what could be achieved.

      An architect by profession he ranged internationally and was a specialist in the field of hospitals and hotels.

      Locally he designed the Foscote Hospital and residential accommodation at the CAD Kineton. On retirement he travelled widely and played a major part in promoting Music in Adderbury to international level. Hence the oft quoted "living in Adderbury must be like living in Saltsburg" is a well deserved tribute. In earlier years he was a keen motorcycle rallyist and took a leading place in the British Experts Trial of 1949 and never lost his love for fast cars. A proud family man he was supported by his wife, children and grandchildren until the end.
