Message de Mary Jane, sa nièce...

I just learned that my uncle Fred died last Thursday March 10th. He was a quiet, retiring and humble man, my father's youngest brother and the last of a family of eight to pass away. One of the perks of caring for my father during the last years of his life, was that I got to know my uncle. He helped first when my mother died in a car accident and I was in India. Thereafter, he and my aunt Alice were always there to help me. I saw them often at various functions and he was always kind to my father, though my father could be hard to bear at times. He never stopped treating him as the 'little brother'. Uncle Fred lied about his age and joined the navy when just sixteen during WWII as most of his brothers and sisters were already in the services. He survived the Battle of Britian but rarely mentioned he was even there. An unassuming man, it was a gift to get to know him in his later years. True to his retiring style, there will only be a small service for his immediate family. And yet I'm sure the Navy Club in Woodstock Ontario are all mourning his loss. He was president off and on for many years, but ever humble, he was also often their cook. And what a great cook he was! He will be missed by many. Bev Yeo Joanne Noble Swain Rick Ranson
