Fred farmed all his life in Dover Township, working until he was in his late 80s, and loved his red tractors. His passion was farming, always staying on top of any leading edge technology and working hard to achieve his goal of bettering his life & his family's.
He enjoyed spending time fishing, hunting, dancing with his wife & listening to music. Fred loved his Tim Hortons and spending time with his pals at the local coffee shop. He will be missed by his friends at the Moose Lodge. He was very well respected by everyone who knew him.
