I have so many good memories of Fred - vacationing in Florida with him, Shirley, Wendy, Jennifer and Melissa; curling at the Dartmouth Curling Club, or in bonspiels; attending Turner family gatherings; but most of all I remember him as a really good man who worked hard, loved his family and enjoyed a good time. My condolences to you. May he Rest in Peace.
