I was saddened to hear about Fred. We grew up in the same neighbourhood, and I use to run into Fred when he was out and about working throughout the city with the forestry department. We also had a teacher parent relationship when I taught Jamie and Sheri years ago at Parkview School. Know that I am thinking of his family, and offer my sincere condolences over your loss.

Please accept my deepest sympathy at this time, Fred was my bus driver for many years. He was a very nice man who made sure all the kids were taken care of, we always made good conversation, I’ll never forget him.
