It is with great sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of Fred, at his home, on Saturday, September 25, 2010 at the age of 52 years.

  1. Jenny, Lane and Carmen

    It was with great sadness that I learned of Fred’s passing. I had the opportunity of golfing with him on many occasions – often in the evenings after work and it was always a pleasure to share the course with him.

    What I will remember most about Fred will be: how he made me feel very welcome as a new member 5 years ago; his easy laugh; his towering iron shots; and the pride in his voice when he described his family. Fred will be greatly missed!

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Dear Jenny, Lane and Carmen,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time….
    I had the pleasure of calling on Fred at Lynwood Phcy for approx. 3 years as a Pharma rep and we became good friends and shared the love of golf together. I looked forward to my visits with Fred as he always had time to talk even when he was up to his eyes in customers….I often wondered how he could multi-task so well…. Fred always seemed to take an active interest in other people’s lives which is a rare trait these days. I now live in BC and had not had contact with Fred for a while. He was really one of the “good guys” and I will always remember Fred very fondly and the way he treated the people around him. So kind, courteous, and gentle.
    Sincerely,
    Greg Booker

    Jenny, Lane, Carmen and the Kinas Family.

    I was shockd to hear of the passing of Fred. Such a loss defies understanding.

    I will miss discussing our many golf tales and his advice on how to improve my game. He always spoke with great pride of his family. On my last visit with Fred he was telling me about the score cards hanging in the garage and how well everyone was doing on their par and birdie hunt….he enjoyed golfing with you so much. I will never forget his immense capacity to laugh and live life fully. I share your sorrow at this time. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

    Sincerely,

  19. Hello, Fred’s Family,

    We would like to take this moment as we share the sadness among ourselves about the news we received about Fred.

    To be totally honest, we don’t know Fred, we just know about him. Our parents Gertrude & Walter Savi are life long friend’s of Fred’s parents Susanne & Gus.

    One of the first conversations that our Mom’s would catch up on as they visited I’m sure was ” What’s new and how are the kids doing?”

    Our prayers and thoughts go out to each member of Fred’s family. May peace and strength combine together to help guide each and everyone of you to be able to move forward comfortably one day at a time. Take care.

    Love & God Bless

    Gord & Bev Savi & Family
