With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Fredrick Joseph Plomp on Wednesday, September 28th, 2011, at the age of 88.
Fred was predeceased by his son, Wayne Henry, in 2003. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 65 yrs Fern; his son, Lawrence Plomp and wife Diane of Vernon, B.C.; his daughters, Dianne Duperon of Vernon, and Jo-Anne Morton and husband Rick of Tillamook, Oregon; and his seven grandchildren.
Fred served his country proudly during the Second World War from his landing in Normandy to the end of the conflict, after which he and Fern met, married and made their way west to British Columbia to start their long life together. He served again in the Korean War, ending his service as an officer in the cadet corp.
Fred’s kind and gentle ways will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
A celebration of his life will follow at a date to be announced.
