From: Stephanie Burns
Relation: He and his wife ran the daycare I attended.

Hi Darren and Darcy,
Along time ago your parents ran a daycare in Okotoks and I attended that daycare as a child. Your parents were a big deal in my life as a child and I can also remember the both of you. Being a little kid I was always thrilled whenever you were willing to play cause you were “big” kids. I’m so sorry for your dad’s passing he was a very kind man. I just know that he and your mom are now reunited and both are with you always. Take care. Stephanie.

From: Jane and Doug Rennie

We are sorry to hear of your family loss. We were friends of Dan and Agnes, sharing their home garden plot on Mission in St Albert for many years and they talked fondly about Fred and his family. Please accept our condolences..

From: Rod Mumby
Relation: Friend

I got to know Fred in Turner Valley and always enjoyed our conversations and time together. Fred did a lot things very well and one of my fondest members of Fred is a painting he painted which we bought and display proudly in our home. Our prayers and thoughts are with Fred’s family at this time.
