Fred Rich

Pioneer to Williams Lake,

Incredible Strong Spirit

WWII Veteran, God Hearted Man.

Fred Rich lived a life of a True Legend. From 1952 – 1967, he and his brother logged, ran a sawmill, and made a life in Williams Lake. Father talked of when he rolled a D9 cat and survived, trucked logs that over hung 26 feet from the deck, and found gold in Arizona. He loved mechanics and was a natural at this work.

He had two sons and four daughters. He gave to those who had nothing, always giving a stranger a meal or money. He loved to tell his life stories, and his blue eyes would twinkle as he laughed about how blessed his life was.

Father is with God, Ahnie and his sister and brothers. 90 years of a great life lived. Fred Rich – a legend in his own right.

A special thank you to Veteran Affairs Canada.

Service to be held Friday, September 11, 2015 in Kamloops at 3:00 pm at the North Shore Tabernacle Church.
