To our great sorrow, husband, father, brother, grandfather, friend, and colleague, has gone on to investigate for himself what, if anything, comes next.
Forever thoughtful and inquisitive, Fred spent a fair amount of time considering the possibilities, hopeful he would move on to his next journey or be reunited with those who left before him. Fred died October 27, 2022, in his home as was his wish after his battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. He was happy to make it to his 80th birthday on October 8.
He leaves to grieve his wife Lucy; daughter Dierdre (Trevor); grandchildren, Kyle, Seth; and Ivy Bethany; sisters, Mary and Anne as well as many wonderful friends and colleagues. He also leaves his two pet therapists, Sushi and Minou, to continue caring for his wife Lucy.
Fred was predeceased by his father Robert Shore, mother Theresa Shore, stepmother Patricia Shore, brother Bob Shore, and daughter Melinda Shore.
Fred was a force; caring, passionate, and intelligent, a man who knew what he wanted and was determined to find a way to get it. He was ever curious about everything and would amaze with his wealth of knowledge. A natural storyteller, he never tired of learning or educating up to his very last day. Rest in peace, Fred, free from all struggles. You will always be in our hearts and minds.
Our sincerest thanks to the many wonderful people who were so supportive of him and of us during the last few weeks. The list is very long and includes many, our own family, friends, neighbours and colleagues, his excellent and caring doctors and last, but not least, the devoted team from Palliative Care. We appreciate everything that was done for Fred and for us.
Fred chose to be cremated and a Celebration of Life has been arranged for Saturday, November 19 at 2:00 p.m. at Desjardins Funeral Home, 357 DesMeurons St. The service will also be livestreamed and can be viewed at the following link:
