April 4, 1935 – April 16, 2020
Fred was born April 4, 1935 at the lnvermere Hospital and grew up in Edgewater where he met his wife, Margaret. His whole life was spent in the Columbia Valley.
Fred is survived by his wife of 59 years, his daughter, June (Chris) and grandchildren, Paul, Amber and Andrew, two sisters, Eva and Helga, three sister-in-laws, Phyllis, Jean and Lillian, and one brother-in-law Jim (Louise) Harrison, and many nieces and nephews. All have been very supportive during this very sad time.
Fred was predeceased by his parents, Anna and Paul, his brothers Charles and Peter, his sister Elna, his brother-in-laws, Ernie, Willie and Walt.
Fred’s passion was curling, hunting/guiding, gardening, hiking and woodworking in his shop. His beautiful smile and whistling personality will be greatly missed.
For many years Fred volunteered at the Windermere Valley Museum, helping create the wonderful Museum complex that we enjoy today.
There will be a celebration of Fred’s life at a later date due to the COVID virus at this time.
If it is your wish, memorial donations can be made to the Windermere Valley Museum, Box 2315, lnvermere, VOA 1KO.
