It is with great sadness that the family of Fred Sus announces his passing on Monday, Jan. 23, 2012 at Rainycrest Long-Term Care in Fort Frances, Ont.
Fred was born Sept. 18, 1926 in Krakow Las, Poland to Anna and John Sus. At the age of four, Fred immigrated to Canada with his family, where he spent the rest of his years.
Fred was a dedicated worker, employed at the local mill for 37 years before retiring as Ground Wood Supervisor. He loved the game of golf and was an avid member of the Kitchen Creek Golf Course for many years.
Fred also took great pride in his well-maintained yard and spent many hours tending to his vegetable garden. He enjoyed his retirement spending many weekends fishing remote lakes, hunting, and enjoying the outdoors.
Fred is survived by his wife, Jane (nee Martin), whom he married in 1953, and their four children, Lynn (Wilf), Cathy (Jim), John (Monica), and Bonny (Brian). He also is survived by his younger sister, Vickie (Elmer) of British Columbia.
Fred was loved by his grandchildren, Jennifer, Melissa, Ariel, Mathew, Erica, Adam, Steven, Sarah, and Samantha; and great-grandchildren, Ashley, Elizabeth, Mackenzie, Madalyn, Cameron, Carley, and Jonathan.
He also is survived by his brother- and sister-in-law, Bill and Gladys Martin; along with his many nieces and nephews.
Fred was predeceased by his parents; sisters, Vera, Betty, Nettie, and Helen; and brother, John.
