My condolences to the family, I was sad to hear of Freddy passing, may he rest in peace

From: Vivianne Senecal

Always enjoyed sharing a story or two over a coffee and pie at the Horse Sales in Bonnyville. You became a great friend of mine that I truly admire and had the utmost respect for! Until we meet again…goodbye ol’ friend, you will be missed!

From: Florence Large
Relation: Elder Mentor and friend

Fred was a great storyteller and historian of the life at Saddle Lake. I was very honored when he would stop in at Eagle Healing Lodge to visit and I would listen to him. He was a great teacher. I wish I would have had the privilege to tape his knowledge of the history as he knew it. Fred spoke straight from the hip so to speak and I was able to relate to him in that way.
Frank and I stopped at the hospital and I so wanted to tell him how much his friendship meant to me. It was not meant to be as he was sedated at the time.
Fred passing on to the happy hunting grounds is a great loss to our community. However the greater loss is to you Diana and your family as you carry on with your life without him being there. Prayers and love from Frank and I.
