Fred McKim

With heavy hearts the family of Fred McKim announces the passing of our beloved Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather.  He slipped away with the coming of the sun being welcomed by his daughter-in-law Lois (Leuy) McKim, his grand daughter Ashley Marie and waiting so patiently the love of his life Marj, who left us with the coming of spring March 21, 2013.

Fred was pre-deceased by his three sisters and one brother, leaving one surviving brother Art McKim of Calgary.

Fred also leaves behind his loving family:  George and Donna, Carol and Don, Wendy and Ron, Charles and Charlene, Tim and Vicky, Martin and Brenda, Brad and Dora, and Sheldon and Tami.

Also to cherish his memory and continue on his tom foolery and shenanigans, 20 grand children and their chosen ones along with 18 great grandchildren, with a new one on the way.

Fred believed in hard work, having fun and living each moment to the fullest.  He travelled with the love of his life and in those travels he made an impression on everyone he met.  His sparkling witt and charm were legendary, and so were his butter passing skills.  His booming “HERE NOW” and eyebrow raising laugh echoed all over Pritchard and into everyone’s hearts.

Until we meet again Dad and Grampa:  Knock twice to go out and take two for “fiveteen”.  

The family would like to thank the wonderful staff on 4N at RIH for their compassion and caring.  You are the glue that holds families together when their worlds are falling apart. 

A Celebration of Fred’s life will be held Saturday, October 7 2017 at 2pm at the Pritchard Hall.
