Dear Shirley . I am so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. When we worked together at RMH, it was so lovely to hear about your marvelous vacations, and local activities. You two were always on the go, doing things together. It was easy to see the love and devotion you had for each other. Although you were married such a long time, the romance was still there .I remember you telling us about a very special Valentines's Day dinner that you had planned for Fred.Please find comfort in your family, friends, and beautiful memories .May God bless and keep you all.

Thank you so much Betty. I appreciate all the kind words. Yes he was the love of my life and I am so heartbroken and lost. I miss sharing my day with him and there is a void that will never be filled. I hope you are enjoying retirement. I think you were moving up north and I hope that went well.
Love Shirl

Thank you so much, AL. Fred always valued your friendship and never forgot his roots. You were one of the best men at our wedding and our wedding picture has been on our dresser for over 50 years so your face has never been forgotten. Fred was so glad to share emails with you this past year and regaled me of some of the adventures that you guys had but parents never knew about! Even though we didn’t get to see you a lot in the later years, you were always close at heart and loved. We pray for better health for you. Love Shirl xoxo

I want to offer my deepest sympathy to Shirley and all of their family on this very sad loss with Fred's passing. Though expected, it doesn't lessen the grief of his loss. I grew up with Fred in a neighbourhood with a lot of baby boomer kids. We always knew each other, but became close friends in our early teens, and I always thought of Fred as my closest friend as a young adult He was a kind of friend who always had your back when you did something stupid, which I did often. He met Shirley, and that was it. They were so committed to each other, and that was awesome. I wish I had kept in better touch with you both over the years, but that didn't happen until recently. Didn't get to see you and laugh about old times Fred, but we'll do that in the future.

Shirley and Family I am so sorry for your loss. I want to share a memory of Fred and Shirley's devotion to each other. I worked with Shirley and on occasion when there was no one available to go for lunch with Shirley, Fred would drive to the office to go for a 1/2 hour lunch with Shirley so she would have company. Even though they just saw each other a few hours ago and will see each other a few hours later, it did not matter. Fred would walk in the office with a cheery, "Hello Ladies, where is my beautiful wife?" Shirley would drop whatever she was doing and rush to meet him and say "Hi sweetheart, I'll be ready in a moment." I will never forget their kindness to each other.

Oh Laurie. You are bang on. That is exactly what happened. Fred and I never ever got tired of one another. I loved my time at work with you and our little coffee and lunch times and sharing our lives. That was the highlight for me, not particularly the work but you girls.❤️ I enjoy our visits and look forward to you and I spending more time together. You are a great friend.

Love Shirl

We are very sorry to hear of Fred's passing and extend our sincere condolences to Shirley and family. Fred was always a pleasure to work with and he would imbue little pearls of wisdom here and there with his unique, pleasant touch. We feel very privileged that we had the opportunity to see him and chat with him briefly just a few weeks ago. He will be missed. Again, our condolences,

The world has lost a wonderful person, husband, father, Poppa, brother, brother-in-law and son-in-law. Fred embraced life fully, marrying his high school sweetheart and his love of his life, Shirley who together lived with no regrets in their choices in life including extensive travel. Fred was my dear and only brother-in-law who always welcomed me warmly. He provided astute and wise counsel as my financial adviser. He loved a good time especially with his family and friends. He was a good golfer and dancer. So many exceptional qualities in one person. He will forever be missed. He was loved.

Shirley

He loved you as much as you loved him and he was so happy that you and I have always had such a close bond and that no matter what, you and I would be there for one another so that gave him a sense of relief and peace. Sisterly love❤️
