Much-loved Radium resident, Brent Frederickson, passed away at home on Tuesday, January 18th.
A Radium council member for the past twenty years, and the owner of Radium Esso and Invermeres Lake Auto, Brent was a devoted father, husband, and grandfather, and a pillar of his community.
Brent was recently recognized in the December 17th issue of The Pioneer for his long-standing service to the Village of Radium.
Brents wife, Jacque, worked alongside Brent for years, building Radium Esso into a bustling, friendly stop for visitors and locals.
Brent has three children, Lainey, Laura, and Logan. He recently welcomed his first grandchild, Theodore, from Lainey and her husband, Steve Wilson.
The Pioneer extends our deepest condolences to the family.
