  • I am so sorry to hear about Fred's passing, my heart goes out to Judy and the girls. So sorry to hear about Fred's tragic accident. I met Fred back in 1970 when my late husband Ron brought Fred over to our home on Mountain Avenue, Ron and Fred were long time buddies in the pharmacuetical industry and they shared the love of golf, and both attended St. John's High School and were both involved in sports during their high school years. I remember fondly the parties Ron and I attended with Red River Drug Rangers, children's parties and picnics, annual masonic hall parties and just visiting each other at our homes. Fred will be lovingly remembered as a wonderful friend, a great sense of humor, kindness to all. My deepest condolences to Judy and family, I will think of Fred and Ron playing golf in heaven, sharing a laugh, and company for each other..

I'll always remember the picture of our Girls Club on Fred's tractor at Twin Beaches. I'm sure Fred got a kick out of that.

  • We miss our friend - his laughter and intensity. Fred was ever-ready to give a helping hand to friends and neighbors. He spoke his mind usually to address wrongs on behalf of others. He was a leader in the community of Twin Lakes Beach advocating for those who suffered through the artificial flood. He was so proud of his family! Judy truly was his soul mate. The strength of his family was never more apparent than during his ordeal that ultimately took him from us. We know that Fred has found peace. Good-bye friend, you will always be in our hearts and minds. Jack and jan - Posted by: JACK AND JAN (FRIENDS) on: Jan 13, 2018

  • Uncle Freddy was so much more than an Uncle. He was a fun cle tickling and teasing us, he was a grun cle if you were not living up to your true potential he had no trouble letting you know and encouraging you to do more. He was the coach and cheerleader all of us wildo's at lake needed our young lives to keep us in check with a lecture one minute, followed by a noogie and bear hug the next. I am in large part the person I am today because of his guidance as a Dad number 2 helping to steer me in the right directions. He cared as much about us his family as his sports and other passions and that passion will transcend into us all. Going to miss you Freddy so much.. Oh I better make that Uncle Freddy or I might get a nudge from heaven. Love you..... - Posted by: Kimmy Renouf (Niece) on: Jan 12, 2018

  • We were very sorry to hear of “Pepsi” passing away. Our memory of Fred goes back to the late 50’s early 60’s. First at Aberdeen and then St. John’s Tech High School. Fred also worked part time at the Metropolitan Theater in Winnipeg with Eleanor. He was very active in High School sports and excelled in basketball under the guidance of Russ Pastuck the St. John’s sports teacher and longtime basketball coach. It does not surprise us that he was also an active golfer. We have a copy of the 1963 Techonian newspaper from St. John’s Tech when Fred was Crowned Sophomore King. Fred was one of the more popular students. Pepsi was a nice guy and everyone who knew him regarded him as great friend. Our sincere condolences his wife and family. Stan & Eleanor (Antifaiff) Kuzak, Sorrento BC. - Posted by: Stan & Eleanor Kuzak (Friend) on: Jan 12, 2018

  • I personally want to extend my-our sincerest condolences to Fred's wife Judy-family and his friends. Fred was quite involved with his Twin Lakes Beach community. I know that his "fiery passion" will be missed by many . It is just not fair that a freak accident has taken him away from us. From one of his "Extended Twin Lake Beach Family"... You have our deepest sympathy, sincerity and the utmost respect...Rudy & Bernice Kitsch - Posted by: Rudy Kitsch (Friend) on: Jan 11, 2018
