BURGESS, Fred Wayne

June 16, 1954 – May 31, 2018

Fred Wayne Burgess of Calgary, AB, passed away on Tuesday, May 31, 2018 at the age of 63 years.

Fred Burgess, known as gentle friend to many who knew him over the past thirty-five plus years in Calgary, moved from Penticton, BC. Although he suffered hearing impairment and anxiety management issues, was a gentle person with an interest in photography and shortwave radio operations. When Fred wasn’t helping people with yard maintenance, he loved to spend the day with an SLR camera photographing interesting landscapes – with special interest in trains and railways in and around Calgary. Alternatively Fred would spend hours mapping out the shortwave radio frequencies. He made this listing freely available to all who were interested.

During recent years, Fred lived at the Peter Coyle Centre were he found friendships with a number of staff and guests.

Fred will be missed and we look forward to seeing him again when heaven and earth are united under one head, that of Jesus Christ.
