We talked about his trapping and he was eager to go back home to Manigotogan. My sincere sympathy to Rose and the rest of the family. Another elder from my childhood who has passed away and leaves behind some great memories. RIP Freddie - Posted by: Debbie Washenfelder (distant relative) on: Dec 04, 2014

  • We are so happy that we got to know you and your beautiful wife Rose. Even if it was only for short time. We will miss your walking and giving everyone that sweet little wave. We had such admiration for your life, Your age, Your stamina. Your trapping skills. Cliff was so surprised with the strength you had when you carried those 5 gallons of water, with no problem at all at the age of 80. But most of all we will miss Your gentle smile. RIP Freddy. Until we meet again, rest in the arms of Jesus. - Posted by: Shannon & Cliff Baker (Friend <3) on: Dec 04, 2014

  • We want to express our condolences to your whole family on the loss of this wonderful man. His presence will be sorely missed in the community from cutting the grass in the cemetery to keeping the park/playground for the children. He was a familiar sight walking the roads of Manigotagan.

  • Thank you for sharing your love with us. When my dad passed away and the twins asked if you could be their grandpa, you so graciously accepted them and for that Jerry and I are forever grateful that our boys had a grandpa in their lives and we couldn't have asked for a better grandpa. Our little town of Manigotogan will never be the same and we will always remember and think of you walking the roads with your little back pack and gun. During Jerry and twins last visit to him, Jerry thanked him for all that he has done for us over the years, if it was a tool, some fire wood or just a nice cozy visit, either at his home or the big dock while they were fishing or swimming. Precious memories we will cherish forever. - Posted by: Amanda, Jerry, Linden, Justyn, Jeremy (Friends) on: Dec 03, 2014
