While raising children, Fred spent summers at his cabin on Galliano Island, where he shared his passion of sport fishing alongside his wife, Marliyn and their three young daughters. After moving to Port Alberni, he continued fishing down the Alberni Canal to Bamfield area. Fred, a very strong athlete in every sport he attempted, participated at the Curling and Lawn Bowling Clubs up to and including his 89th Birthday. Living a passionate life, Fred loved his work and the outdoors but most importantly, his family and friends. With a strong presence and a big personality, Fred will certainly be missed by many.
