Frederick William (Fred) Frondall passed away peacefully in Moosomin on Friday, November 24 surrounded by his loving family.
Fred was born on the family homestead on November 6, 1929. He married Edna Graham on January 5, 1955, was blessed with six children, and farmed in the Fleming area for over 40 years.
Fred is survived by his wife Edna, and brother Vern. He is also survived by his children and their families: Jack (Janet) Frondall, Kent, Greg (Stephanie and great-grandson Jonathan) and Ward; Joy (Glen) Bateman, Chris (Kelsey) and Dani; Doug Frondall, Larissa, Brent and Deanna; Larry (Rhonda) Frondall, Blake and Kimberley; Gord (Cathy) Frondall and Nicholas; Lisa (Sean) Wallace, Ben and Mark; sisters-in-law Ruth Martineau and Marguerite Dunn and brother-in-law Jack Graham as well as many nieces and nephews. Fred was pre-deceased by his mother and father, Lew and Ted Frondall and sister-in-law, Evelyn Frondall.
Dad was an outdoorsman, sportsman and craftsman. He loved the land and nature and spent many hours hunting and fishing with many family and friends. He enjoyed baseball, curling, pool and golf throughout his life. Fred was a meticulous craftsman in high demand, creating many knives, intarsia, or cabinets. Dad was a regular at coffee row and enjoyed talking farming with his many friends.
We have learned many important values and lessons from Dad. Most importantly; especially in the last few years, Dad taught us how important it is to love and care for those who are special to us. The best thing that he has left behind for us is his example.
If friends so desire, donations can be made to the Fleming Community Organization in memory of Fred.
The family wishes to thank everyone for all of the hugs, messages, cards, food and flowers. Thank you to those who could attend Dad’s celebration of life with us. We especially thank all of the doctors, nurses and caregivers from the Southeast Integrated Care Centre, Home Care and Long-Term Care for their kind, compassionate and gentle care.
