Mike and I are saddened to hear of the passing of our neighbour Fred.We looked forward to seeing him each time we walked down Churchill Avenue;he always had a smile and friendly greeting.We will miss him..Mike and Mary King

As an owner of an MGB I had the absolute pleasure to know Mr. Anderson. Anyone who owned an MG knew of Fred and his amazing talents. Though I appreciated his knowledge of the car and his support to owners, I best remember him telling the stories of his own vehicles and the parts he made (not bought) to get them on the road. I was saddened to hear of his recent passing. Thank you Fred! Rest in peace. My condolences to his wife and family.

Mrs.Anderson & Family..So sad to hear of Mr.Anderson.Deepest condolences. Thoughts and prayers are with you and all the family. God Bless.R.I.P.Mr Anderson.

Donna and Wayne our thoughts and prayers are with u at this difficult time. Spent a week or 2 with Fred in the country many years ago. A very kind and gentle man.

Hole see u guys soon.

I had the pleasure of working with Fred at P&R Auto Glass and what a pleasure to be in his company . Anything that moved on the planet he sort of had first hand knowledge about it . He invited me to his house one Saturday morning for breakfast and it included everything that a breakfast is made of including whiskey.
I thanked him and when i was leaving he said “now you can’t go away and give my house a bad name” . Never forget that and never forget you Fred.
Rest easy friend

Donna, so sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing.. Cherish all the wonderful memories. My thoughts are with you.

Donna so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing, keep close all your wonderful memories.

Mrs. Anderson and family, sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. I had worked with Fred for a few years at P & R Auto Glass, Fred was liked by all, and a very kind hearted and considerate man. My thoughts are with you at this time.

Mrs. Anderson, Donna and family. I want to express my condolences on the passing of the best neighbour ever. I feel privileged to have lived next door to him for the past 15 years and have always appreciated his kindness and caring toward me , my family and friends. He was a man of so many talents and was always willing to share them every chance he got. With any project he took on, his attention to detail and determination to complete it meticulously was incredible. From the day I met him to the last day I saw him, and every day in between, he greeted me with his infectious smile. My life is richer having known Mr. Fred Anderson.

Dearest Florence, Donna, Chris and Family. It is with a heavy heart that I send my deepest sympathy to all of you concerning the loss of our Dear Sweet Fred. I am so happy I got to spend some time with him this Summer when I was down on vacation. I will never forget how he welcomed me into the Mount Pearl Lions Club when I first arrived in Newfoundland and always had a hug and kiss for me in greeting at every event. He made me feel so part of the Club and Community. What a wonderful legacy of 63 years of Service. Keeping everyone in thought and prayer. xoxoxo

Mrs. Anderson and family:
My thought and prayers are with each of you during this difficult time.

Condolences to the family from John and Ethel Boland.

Mrs. Anderson and family, sorry for your loss of such a great man. I had the pleasure of working with Fred back at P & R Glass in the 70’s and 80’s. He was such a great man and helpful to everybody. At that time……..Fred and the Late Art LeDrew were the backbone of that business . When it came to humour………they were like Laurel and Hardy. When it came to work ethic……..they were Black & Decker! God Bless you Fred………rest in peace my friend!

My condolences to Florence and family. Fred and Florence were our neighbors on churchill Avenue in the 70s and 80s. Rest in Peace Fred.

Florence and Donna, so very sorry for your loss. Fred was a wonderful man, he always made us feel like family. Love to you both from Marie & Ken

Mrs Anderson and family, I am so sorry to hear of Mr Anderson’s passing. He was a lovely man with a heart warming smile. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.

To: former Mount Pearl Lioness President Florence and the family of Lion Fred. The Lions of Mount Pearl and Lions throughout the District, grieve with you in your loss. As the current Honourary President, Lion Fred has generously given of his time talents and resources for the benefit of others. He encouraged and committed his family’s involvement and support of humanitarian service through Lions’ activities; and, he was a mentor to all Lions. He shared valuable wisdom, insight and guidance in his service to others – and always acted with respect and dignity to all. His kind nature and willingness to help in any task was always evident. From the sale of brooms, light bulbs and apples out of a barrel … to bringing his tools, knowledge and finally, his apprentice-grandson, to build the Santa Float., Fred was up to the task – with a smile and a twinkle in his eye.
After 63 years of Lions Service, Fred has earned a rest and he will be welcomed home.
With special thoughts and prayers for Florence and family from all of Fred’s Lion Friends.

Donna, Florence and all of Fred’s family. It was so sad to hear of Fred’s passing. He was a great Churchill Avenue neighbor and family friend. Please accept my condolences and may the memories you cherish help you through this difficult time.

Donna & Wayne, Debbie, Christopher and all of Fred’s family: We offer you our condolences. All who knew Fred loved and respected him greatly. You have been given such a wonderful heritage of compassion and integrity. Fred has been a strong example of all that is good in every relationship and his influence has ensured that members of his family also possess those honourable traits. He will remain in your hearts.

Florence, we know that you have lost the greatest treasure of your heart. We also know that you were Fred’s greatest treasure and the light of his life. That is a history that will keep you wrapped in his love, as long as you live. We pray for your peace and comfort and we trust that you will continue to feel God’s love and compassion, in the presence of family and friends. with love, Claudette & Gerald
