Fred was born October 1, 1926 in Claresholm, Alberta and raised on the family farm east of Stavely where he and Blanche farmed and raised cattle. They moved to the original homestead as newlyweds in 1951 and raised their three children there. They built a home a mile away in 1982. Fred always said he was on the “Freedom 85” Retirement Plan from farming and ranching but remained active helping with the operation throughout his life. Fred was a lifetime member of the Stavely Odd Fellows and received his 65 year pin this year. He was also a lifetime member of the Stavely Elks and was an active community member.
