Fred Ainley

Fred Ainley

Born to Fredrick & Nellie Ainley in Bengough, Saskatchewan.

Fred finally made his last journey passing peacefully on November 2, 2016.

Fred lived in the Cariboo since 1971 and loved to call this his home, he always shared many memories of hunting trips (the moose or deer that got away); fishing trips (of course the big one that broke the line). Fred loved his grandchildren, he loved to mentor and teach them. Fred’s job as a Chief Health Inspector gave him the opportunity to travel throughout the Cariboo covering approximately 80,000 square miles until his retirement in 1984. Fred was an active member within organizations in Williams Lake, he had the opportunity as a marriage commissioner to meet many new people and experience many unique places.

Fred is survived by his daughter Tamara (Craig) Bush; granddaughters Danika & Kayla Bush; grandson Nico; plus many nieces & nephews.

Fred was predeceased by his son Joel on July 6, 2004 and his wife Irene on December 20, 2011.

Fred resided at Deni House and this is where he passed peacefully on November 2, 2016.

We would like to thank all the staff at Deni House for their love & care they shared with Fred. This was dads home for 5 years and although not an ideal home in everyone’s eye, he did love the staff and enjoyed the many new friends he made there.
