William Fredrick 'Fred' Attfield

March 2, 2024


January 3, 1933 - March 2, 2024

William Fredrick "Fred" Attfield, 91 years old of Sorrento, BC passed away at home on March 2, 2024.

Fred was cared for by 3 daughters: Laura, Bev, and Colleen under the direction of Dr. K Goldberg and the Community Palliative Care Team Nurses in Salmon Arm

Fred, for the last 28 ½ years worked for Super Save Gas right up to 12 days before he passed away.

It appears that he was somewhat of a Legend in Salmon Arm, through working at the gas station.

Fred enjoyed gardening right up to last year 2023, with tomatoes being his specialty. However, not only did he enjoy gardening, there was never a dull moment when you visited or called him, the stories he could tell. Everyone who knew him were entertained thoroughly by his stories. Fred wasn't much of a jokester, but in the last few days of his life, he pulled some funny ones.

One of his requests was if we could buy him a package of cigarettes and a case of beer and then head out to play football.

Fred is predeceased by his wife Gail in March 2011 and leaves behind five daughters Bev (Mike), Brenda (Trevor), Laura (Ben), Colleen (Ray), and Donna (Glenice), 19 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren, and 1 brother.

Celebration of life will be held at the Sorrento Memorial Hall, 1150 Passchendaele Rd, Sorrento, BC, on March 16, 2024, at 1:00 pm.
