Our dear father and grandfather Fred Neitzert passed away peacefully on December 29, 2021, after bravely battling glioblastoma. His last days had been spent surrounded by family, friends and love. Fred was a cherished husband to Gisela (deceased); a loving father and father-in-law to Frank (Martha), Monica (Donovan), Robert (deceased), Christina (Martin), and Tanya (James). He was a beloved grandfather to Daniel, Ehren, Oliver, Charlotte, Rachel, Mia, Nicholas and Chloé. His family, as well as many friends and neighbours, will deeply miss him.
Fred was a hardworking business owner whose love of life, kindness, generosity, integrity and work ethic inspired all who knew him. An accomplished craftsman, he built his first home and three cottages by hand. With his endless energy, he supported friends, family, neighbours, and his church with building projects of all sizes and scope to his very last days.
He will be deeply missed for his strength, enthusiasm, determination, story-telling, “hollow leg”, work ethic, kindness, and unconditional circle of love for his many friends and family.
