Fred was born on May 9, 1930 in Turtleford, Saskatchewan. He was in the merchant marines as a young man, sailing the world. He retired from 40 years in the towboat industry in 1995, retiring as a Captain. Fred retired first in Revelstoke, then Kelowna and finally returning to Revelstoke to live.
Fred leaves behind a daughter Deborah Gwynne Weatherby Falk and her husband Marvin of New Westminster, son Fredrick James Weatherby and his wife Patricia of Revelstoke; two grandchildren and their families: Laura and Rusty Berarducci and their new son Aavrin of Revelstoke and Stuart and Elise Weatherby and their son Nate of New Westminster. He was predeceased by two sons, Daniel and Raymond.
The family want to thank all who were there to help in dad’s care when he returned to Revelstoke. His loving home support team who faithfully came each day to chat and make sure he was cared for; their office for putting up with so many changes to their schedules; the ambulance and fire department staff; the hospital staff for their tender care of dad’s last hours; Dr. Rose, Dr. Mostert and the incredible nursing staff for your care of dad.
He was stolen away before his time… he has crossed the bar.
