William (Fred) Acton

16 March 1929 – 21 May 2015

Comox BC

Sadly we have to say good-bye to a wonderful and loving husband, father, and grandpa. We will forever remember Fred’s laugh, smile, sense of humour, and love of sweets. He always liked a good game of cards, enjoyed bowling, golfing, ball, and hockey. Fred was born in Comox and raised in Hilliers where he started his working career as a faller. He re-enlisted in the Air Force in 1958 retiring in 1979. Fred leaves behind his loving wife, Ruby, of nearly 58 years, sons Donald, Robert (Cheryl), granddaughter Megan, brothers Gerald (Marg), Stan (Diane), Charles (Heather) and sister Bet (Ray). He was predeceased by sisters Dorothy and Jeannette. A special thanks to Dr Harris and the VIHA home support team. Fred requested there be no service.

Love you Pops
