Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • It was very sad to hear of Fred's passing. I would like to share a short note about Fred. A few weeks ago, before Fred's passing, my golf foursome had finished our round and were chatting about all sorts of things, including solving the world's problems, our golf games and hockey. In the foursome were three of us who played hockey in St. Vital. We started talking about players we played with and against. One of the foursome said you know "I always thought Fred Giles was a great defenceman." We all agreed. I played with Fred on the Glenwood Juvenile hockey team and the St. Vital Victorias. I liked Fred immediately, his wry sense of humour, easy going personality and his intelligence. On Fred's recommendation, I was able to play for the University of Winnipeg Wesmen for two years and then earn a degree. Unfortunately, for a number of reasons I lost touch with him, but he was always remembered fondly. Fred is one of those people you are fortunate to meet in life, and it is with great sadness I learned of his passing. He will be greatly missed. - Posted by: Phil Cyrenne (Friend and Teammate) on: May 30, 2019

  • I first met Fred when we were 6. We were in grade 1 together and ended up going to school for 12 years. When we hit grade 10, Fred was the only one with a car. So during the winter months, he would pick up about 4 or 5 of us in the mornings and gave us a ride to school. It only cost us $5.00 a week. He was funny and kind. I went to all of his hockey games because he had played with an old boyfriend of mine. He used to have some very good parties after games. It was a great time in my life and Fred was a good friend. Later on in life I was able to work alongside with his son at Superstore and with his future son-in-law. I was away when I was told of Fred’s passing. This hit home with me. I remember his laugh and his sense of humour. He was a friend, a good husband and good father. He will be missed. - Posted by: Bobbi Mills (Friend) on: May 25, 2019
