Fred was a hard working man with a passion for gardening. he brought delight to many when he shared his abundance with family, friends, and new associates. He dedicated many hours to volunteer construction of over 70 Kingdom Halls throughout Ontario and numerous projects in Honduras.
His deep love for God and the Bible compelled him to share with others the hopeful promises for the future. Even with failing health, his deep conviction was evident as he regularly reminded his family of God’s promised resurrection and new world to come, at which time he hoped to be reunited with his family.
