RUGGI, Alfred (Fred) - Called home by the Lord, Alfred (Fred) Ruggi died peacefully in his sleep at Shalom Manor in Grimsby on September 11, 2017 in his ninety-first year.
He will be sadly missed by his beloved wife of over fifty-nine years, Linda. Fred was the dear father of Jim and Marg Ruggi, Annie-Lynn and Ronn VanAndel, and Jake and Deanna Ruggi, the beloved grandfather of eleven grandchildren and their spouses, and proud great grand-dad to twelve great-grandchildren.
