his MD at the University of Manitoba in 1953. In the

middle of the 1950s, he began his 40 year association

he travelled extensively to interesting places all over the

world, including parts of Canada’s north.

He retired from his practice in 1994; he and Dorothy

moved to Salt Spring in that same year. He was a

well known volunteer in many roles within several

organizations, both in Winnipeg and within the Salt

Spring community. His service was very generous to the

parishes of St. George’s Anglican Church, Crescentwood,

in Winnipeg, and to the Anglican Parish of Salt Spring

Island. Fred also had lifelong interests in gardening,

painting, art appreciation, antique collecting, and

music of all kinds. He enjoyed camping and cottage life,

particularly at Austin Lake, ON.
