Fredrick Stevens Obituary

Dad passed peacefully on Monday, February 26th, 2024 at Valleyview Personal Care Home, Brandon, MB (formerly of Glenboro, MB) at the age of 97.

He is lovingly cherished by his children, Randy, Darry (Cher) and Jody (Carl), his grandchildren: Cameron and Tyler; Michael, Branden (Regan) and Riki; and Jennie (Patrick), Dory (Adria), Riley (Rachelle) and Sally (Jeff) and nine great grandchildren.  Dad was always interested in his kids’ lives, asking how his grandchildren and great grandchildren were doing and what they were doing. 

Dad is also survived by two sisters-in-law, Roma Stevenson and Beverley Harris and many nieces and nephews.

Dad was predeceased by the love of his life, his wife Fern, parents Russell and Agnes, his parents-in-law, Harvey and Eleanor Tolton; his son-in-law, Harold; brothers Ernie (Marion) and Bill (Marion) and sister Gwen (Fred) his in-laws Roland (Isabelle), Phyllis (Max), Horace and Robert.

Dad was born in Oak Lake, MB to parents, Russell and Agnes (Munroe) Stevens.  He was raised with two brothers, Ernie and Bill and a sister, Gwen. In 1945, he moved to Brandon with his parents where he attended business college.  After college, Dad started his 40+ year career working for the CPR.  He started as a telegrapher, moved to the teletype machine and ended his career working with computers.  Locations also changed with the job.  Dad (and family) moved from Griswold to Welwyn (SK) and finally arrived in Glenboro in 1966 as the station agent master.  When the station was closed in 1971, Dad became a terminal operator and worked in various locations.  He retired in 1985.

Mom and Dad married in June 1951 and they embarked on an incredible journey together, raising three children, working, travelling the world, and enjoying married life for 71 years.  They made their home in Glenboro for 32 years.  They made many special, lifelong friends along the way.  After retirement, Mom and Dad travelled extensively and then, when they were in their late eighties, enjoyed escaping winters to Maricopa, AZ. 

Dad loved sports of any kind; playing, coaching and later in life as a passionate spectator.  He was an avid gardener, spending many hours in a day, growing flowers and vegetables.  Dad was a founding member of the Glenboro and Area Foundation, was a member of the Masonic Lodge and served on the United Church Board. 

A Celebration of Fred’s life will be held on Tuesday, March 5th, 2024 at 2:00 pm in the Glenboro United Church with Sandra Rex officiating.  A Private Family inurnment will take place at Rosewood Memorial Gardens later.

Friends who so wish, memorial donations can be made in Fred’s memory to the Glenboro & Area Foundation, Box 147, Glenboro, MB or to the Glenboro United Church Memorial Fund, Box 623, Glenboro, MB R0K 0X0.

Dad your struggle is over and you are now with Mom. 

We miss you both so very much, rest easy.
