Freddie spent most of his life in the North End of Winnipeg. As a young man he loved playing hockey, baseball, football and mentored lots of young people. He loved spending time with family and friends, especially going out for coffee and for rides. He was a quiet jokester who loved making others laugh.
Freddie became Christian over 20 years ago and dedicated his life to the lord. He loved spending his days as a fishing guide and working on countless vehicles. During his quiet times he spent his hours praising and talking to the Lord, up until his passing on September 1, 2019. He was prepared to leave his life for his eternal home with this Lord and Savior. He is forever loved, and the amazing memories will always be cherished.
