We are saddened to announce the sudden passing of a beloved father, grandpa and friend. Predeceased by Bernice, Sonya and son Ricky. Left to honour his memory is his daughter Debbi (John), stepdaughter Karina (Dwaine) and to continue his fishing legacy are his grandchildren; Kirstin, Keri, Jamie, Kaitlyn and Ashley.

Fred arrived from Poland as a young man. Making his way out west where he thoroughly embraced the Cariboo life with his love of the outdoors, which included hunting, fishing and golf. He did everything with passion and skill. No matter what hat he wore as Mr. Fix It, chef and above all master fisherman. He honoured friends and family with his canned or smoked fish. No doubt the fish are smiling now.

No service by request. Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation may be made in his memory.
