He always said the race doesn’t go to the swiftest, but to those who keep on running, and he ran a glorious race, touching everyone he met along the way.
If he wasn’t running marathons with his gang of four, or calling and more recently, texting his wide circle of family and friends, he could be found working. He loved his career as a psychiatrist and was devoted to his patients. Fred will be missed by all those who knew him, both in Winnipeg, the home of his heart and North Vancouver, where he took the art of being a Zaida to new heights. Lois, his wife and companion of 53 years, children, Kim and husband Ted, Myles and wife Naomi and his 5 adored grandchildren are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support from near and far. We celebrate a life well-lived. He was one of a kind.
