Sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. Got many a chuckle from talking to him when I was young & worked at my Nan’s store .Ironically..over 30 years later my daughter works at a different store & she said the exact same thing..
Fred had an amazing sense of humor & will be missed.

So sorry for your loss. He was such a sweet person.

I’m here now with a flood of memories of myself and Fred,I am so sadden to know life is over for Fred. A very very good man and I will truly miss him. Life had separated us but memories will always be there, Fred we will meet each other again im sure. God bless you buddy and I know you definitely will be welcomed in the next life. Again Fred I will always remember you buddy.

The Ebsary Family:
So sorry for your loss. Our sincere condolences to all the family.

To Sherry and Fred’s family-we are sending you all our love! Scott and I are the lucky people who live next door to Fred and Sherry. Almost every day you can meet Fred and have a chat and a laugh. He loved to torment and tease you which alway brought a smaile to your face. He took pride in watching over our house and property when we were away, and he would let me know what was new happening in the community. He always brought over a bone for our dog Dakota, and she loved to see Fred coming. He would share his tomaotes with me because Sherry didn’t like them. Even my children, where deeply saddened when I told them of Fred’s passing, as they alway and chats with Fred too when they came to visit. Our hearts are a little empty with Fred’s passing, but we know he will still be around now and then, watching over us. Take care Fred, see you on the other side.

Sherry so sorry to hear of Fred’s passing and I will be thinking of you in this time of sorrow. Hang onto your precious memories to help you through this sad time. RIP Fred

Well Sherry what can I say that hasn’t already been said? Fred was truly one of a kind and I miss him even now. I just read Diane’s post and I have a similar story. When I would call Sherry he would always say, ” is that DonnaConna?”
Leave it to Fred to always put a smile on your face. Then there was the time he had to go to Whitbourne then decided to “go visit Donna, in Marystown!! Imagine the surprise when he knocked on my door lol
I will do my best to help Sherry deal with this monumental loss. Don’t worry, Freddy, I got this. Loves ya buddy.

Sherry, please accept my deepest condolences on Fred’s passing. Cherish your memories of happy times you spent together. Hugs.

Our deepest condolences to all the family. We have many fond memories of Fred. Thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.

We were so very sad to hear of Fred’s passing. Fred brought so many happy moments to all our lives and has left us with a treasure trove of memories. One of the many things I’ll be reminded of is when I’d call Sherry, he’d ask her who she was talking to. When she’d say it was Diane, he’d always yell out “I misses you, you know!” He’d follow that up by feigning crying with a “Boo Hoo Hoo!” I could always count on him to say this and it’s something I will hear in my mind for a long time to come. It’s the little things we’ll remember. There will be laughs, stories and smiles that will help push your pain away and will ultimately bring back your smiles. Thoughts and prayers go out to you all during this difficult time. Take care! Lots of love is being sent to my sister, Sherry and the Ebsary Family. Always remember what a funny, kind man Fred Ebsary was. He will be missed by many but remember the stories he has left us all. Love, Diane and Donald Codner
