On Sunday, October 21, 2018, Fred Hawes passed away at the age of 77 with his family by his side in Agassiz, BC.
Fred will be remembered for his humor, creativity, big squinty smile and open heart for the diversity of all people. He respected those most who beat to their own drum and challenged the status quo. Wildly curious and adventurous, he reminded us of the healing power of nature, to respect its’ natural beauty and inquire into the many mysteries of life. He impressed upon his family to question assumptions and follow their hearts reminding them the most important things are your word, loyalty and love. He was beloved by all.
Fred was preceded in death by his father, Thomas Jr. and mother, Margaret, brother, Tim (Marie). He is survived by his sister Louise, wife Jeannette, his children Taya and Roanan, son-in-law Keith, grandson Christian, in-laws, several nieces and nephews and of course cherished friends.
A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday November 18th 1pm at All Saints Anglican Church in Agassiz with a Celebration of Life reception to be held until 5pm at The Fraser River Lodge at 7984 McDonald Road Agassiz, British Columbia.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations to go to the Aboriginal Youth Mentorship Program in Chilliwack in his name.
In loving memory, The Hawes Family.
