Brian Drumm - September 14, 2023

Our neighborhood lost a very nice man! A family lost a great Dad a great Husband and a great Grandfather! Fred was like the Mayor of our street always looking out for us all! His lawns and gardens were pristine and he took a lot of pride in all he built! Why now you say we don’t have those answers! I can’t imagine the pain his family is feeling but they know one thing they have a lot of people there for them because Fred was a kind gentle soul who liked everyone ! If you liked the Leafs or Cougers you certainly were in his wheelhouse for sports! Now at night as we walk our dog the candle in his window glows brightly but his memory and hockey talks will last forever!! May prayers be with your family and may you rest in peace! Brian,Carol, Rebecca Kirsten Nathan and Bryn! Your neighbours forever!!

I am so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. He was an an amazing supervisor and even a better person and friend. I worked in the TRF from 2009 until I retired in 2018 with Fred being my supervisor the entire time. Makes me wish I had of went over there much earlier! I don't think many get to experience what us TRFr's did. Yes, Fred was our boss, but he was also our friend who cared about us, which I don't believe happens too often. You will be missed greatly. My condolences to his family and all those that had the privilege of knowing him. RIP my friend.
