I’m very sorry for the sadness that the family is experiencing now, but so happy for Fred to be up and running! Just imagine the freedom of one’s spirit being set free – no boundaries at all. I am going to miss seeing his green light on Facebook. Loving wishes to all of the family and friends.

There is a special angel in heaven who is very busy watching over family and friends. Fred touched a lot of lives over the years and greeted everyone with a smile and a hug.

My great grandpa was an amazing man. He was a man so full of life, love, laughter and kindness. From a very young age before I could even read he instilled a passion for literature in me. He gave the best hugs, always long and heart felt. He had a wonderful listening ear; he was never judgemental and he always offered good advice. I could go on and on about all the amazing qualities he possessed, but all who knew him know what am amazing man he was. I’ll miss so many things. .. jokes, laughter, emails, paintings, hugs etc. But I will carry on all the memories of these things for a lifetime. He lived a great life here and I’m sure he will up in the heavens as well. RIP Great Grandpa we will carry your love and your memory always <3
