With heavy hearts we announce that our beloved husband, Dad, and Opa passed away Thursday evening following a lengthy illness.
Fred will be lovingly remembered by Eileen, his wife of 58 years; son Darrel and wife Carol (Alanna and Ryan) of Calgary; son Robert and wife Brenda (Michaela, and Nicole [Todd]) of Red Deer; daughter Anita and husband Mitchell (Daniel and Grace) of Calgary; sister Gisela; sister-in-law Roselotte; nephews Ulrich of Germany and Norman of Tofield; as well as other relatives and friends.
Fred had a passion for building, not just in his construction business (Permyd Builders) but also in his relationships with people. He was a stalwart supporter of his children and grandchildren; a mentor to colleagues; and a faithful friend. The people and projects of St. A's always had a special place in Dads heart.
We marvelled at his creativity. Fred will be greatly missed.
A celebration of Freds life will be held at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at St. Augustines Anglican Church, 6110 Fulton Road, Edmonton.
The family expresses heartfelt thanks to the staff at CapitalCare Norwood Hospice for their compassion and care.
Donations in memory of Fred may be made to CapitalCare Foundation, 6th Floor, 10909 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB, T5J 3M9.
