1934 – 2015

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fred on December 31, 2015 in Vernon, BC, born February 7, 1934 in Hafford, SK. Fred moved to Jasper, AB for a short period of time where he started his career with the CNR. He then transferred to Prince George, BC where he spent most of his working life up until he retired to Vernon in 1990.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Hilda; sons: Kelvin (Teresa) of Vernon, BC, Ronald (Rita) of Vernon, BC; grandchildren: Megan (Cam) of Kamloops, BC, Ryan of Toronto, ON; brother: Dan; sister: Bev; numerous nieces, nephews, and many extended family and friends.
