May 11, 1955 – July 30, 2014
It is with great heartache and sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved son & brother who passed away after a courageous battle with cancer.
He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by his mom Pat (Eric), brother Ken (Debbie), nephew Raymond, stepchildren Mike & Shawna and many other friends and relatives including Rick (a true brother in spirit) Sharon & Ricky who’s outpouring of love and support throughout Fred’s battle was a true blessing. He was predeceased by his dad Alfred, brothers John, Russell and David and Sister Karen.
Growing up Fred’s passion was boxing. Under the guidance of his trainer Ellio Ius, he went on to win several titles including the Golden Gloves. A 10 count was held in Fred’s memory at this year’s Golden Gloves in Langley. Most of his career was spent in the construction business with his cousin Rick.
Nothing meant more to Fred than his FAMILY – immediate & extended. They enjoyed sports, camping, guitars, singing, family outings, horseshoes & campfires to name a few.
The family wishes to thank the nursing staff at NRGH Palliative Care Ward for their compassion, caring and understanding of his needs.
No funeral service by request.
As Fred would say “It is what it is…
In lieu of flowers we ask that you spend time with the ones that you love.
