October 8, 1943 – November 20, 2012
Fredrick (Fred) David Oake beloved husband of Margaret left us peacefully on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at the age of 69 years.
Fred was born in Fogo Island, Newfoundland. He served in the army, then moved to Ontario where it was there that he met his beautiful wife Margaret and had their two children Colleen and David. Fred was keen with the kids and their involvement with sports. He loved to fish, waterski, skydive and was willing to do any sort of handy-man work for all of his neighbours. He was known around his neighbourhood as the snow-angel.
Fred loved life and loved to make others laugh. He definitely had a gift of making people smile.
Besides his loving wife Margaret of forty-six years, he will be greatly missed and cherished by his children Colleen and David; his grandson Jason; along with his brothers and sisters, Ida, Harold (Jean), Bill (Carol), Lloyd (Marcella), Marie (Hal), Ruby (Jay), Audrey (Mal), Janice (Garry), Wallace (Myra (Randy); and numerous nieces and nephews. Fred will be sadly missed by his family and all who knew him. He was predeceased by his brother Neil; mother Alice; father Fred; and daughter-in-law Rhonda Ann Oake.
