He left this world fulfilling a dream and doing something he had grown to love. Fred was well known for his oyster farm and Picards B&B on Cortes.
He will be sadly missed most by his son Nigel. They worked together on the oyster farm and then on the hot dog cart they ran together in Victoria. Fred was not only a father to Nigel, he was his" best friend". He will also be lovingly missed by Bevann, his wife of 40 years, his daughter Vanessa, her partner Andy,
his daughter Candace and his two granddaughters  Savannah and Madelyn, his brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephewsand lots of friends.
Fred will always be remembered for his friendly personality, his smile, and his warehouse of  information.
