October 4, 1927 – November 6, 2015

With great sadness we announce the passing of our step-father Fred on Friday, November 6, 2015 at his home in Parksville.

Fred was born in England then shipped to Vancouver Island at a very young age as a British home child. He lived most of his life in Port Alberni and Parksville.

Fred was predeceased by his wife of 48 years, Elizabeth ”Betty” Cyr, step daughter Michelle, and step grandson, Sean.  He is survived by his step children, Sharon Keene, Dennis (Jocelyn) Cyr, Rick (Gail) Cyr; step grandchildren, Shannon, Megan, Randy, Mike, Richard, Stewart, Honalee; and great grandchildren, Melissa, Gaige, Brookelynn, Makenzie, Evan, Bryden, Holtby.

Fred spent all of his working years as a faller in the logging industry. After his retirement, he kept busy as a handyman and doing yard work. He loved fishing, hunting and was an avid gardener.

We are so thankful for the love and care he received during his time at Arrowsmith Lodge. In keeping with Fred’s wishes there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, please consider honouring Fred’s memory with a donation in his name to the Arrowsmith Lodge Society Foundation, 266 Moilliet Street, Parksville BC V9P 1M9.

Greatly missed and forever in our hearts.
