FREDERIC WESLEY CHRISTIE 1908 - 2007 Frederic Wesley Christie passed away on August 12, 2007 at the Tuxedo Villa Nursing Home. He was born in Winnipeg on May 30, 1908 and was looking forward to a 100th birthday celebration. He was predeceased by his wife Marjorie in October 2001 and by his parents Augustus J. Christie and Ella J. Christie (nee Crooks). He was also predeceased by his sister Dorothy, brothers Donald and Ray and their spouses. Fred is survived by his children John Christie (Joyce), James Christie (Glenna) and Elizabeth Christie; by his grandchildren Heather and Lynne Christie; and his great-grandsons Brendan and Carson Domoney. He is also survived by several nephews, nieces and their families. Fred earned his BA degree in 1928 and his LLB in 1932. He was called to the Bar in October 1932. He joined the Toronto General Trust Company in 1936. He acted as a mortgage officer for a short period and then as a trust officer, retiring in 1973 as a manager of the Trust Department. He immediately joined Pitblado and Hoskin and worked on a part time basis until finally retiring in 1984. During the Second World War, on leave from the Toronto General Trust, he served all three battalions of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles (Canada and Britain), at National Defense Headquarters in Ottawa and as prosecutor Courts Martial in the Judge Advocate General Branch for Military District No. 10. Fred was a past master of Ionic Masonic Lodge and a member of the Scottish Rite. Fred's greatest pleasure besides his family was the cottage at West Hawk Lake. He spent his weekends and holidays there for as long as he could and then passed it on to his family so that he would be able to visit whenever possible. The family would like to thank the staff at Tuxedo Villa Nursing Home for their many years of care and kindness especially during the past three months. A celebration of Fred's life will be held at Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway, on Thursday, August 16, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow.
