HOGARTH, Fredrick “Fred”  -  February 4 th , 1944 - November 5th, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that the Hogarth family announce the passing of Fred Hogarth.

Fred passed away peacefully at the age of 78 at Peterborough Regional Health Centre in the late hours of November 5th, 2022. 

Fred leaves behind his lifelong partner and love of his life of 63 years, Barbara, and three children, James (Kate Kelly), David (Anne Robinson), and Michelle (Guy Dormon).

Cherished Papa of 6 grandkids, Christopher (Corinne), Heather (Dave), Kourtney (Matthew), Matthew (Maddison), Nicholas (Sy), and Michael (Megan). Amazing Big Papa (Great- Grandfather) to 5 Great-Grandchildren; Charlotte, Hallie, Blake, Grayson, and Maple. 

As well as his beloved shih tzu, Shawni, and
budgie JJ.

Fred has been reunited with his parents, Fred and Lydia Hogarth, his brother Harold (Faye), sisters Helen (Harold) and Barbara (George), and all his beloved 4-legged animals including, Tasha, Brandi, and Yawni.

Fred will also be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews. 

Fred grew up in Oshawa, Ontario, and spent his younger years with Barb in Maple Grove and then 35 Years in Bowmanville. Fred started at General Motors in 1963 and retired with 34.1 years of service in 1994.  

During the summers, Fred and Barb created wonderful memories with their children and grandchildren at Melody Bay in Buckhorn for 38 years and on their Sunray boat, named Frebar. Fred and Barb have enjoyed the past 19 years of retirement in their beloved “Castle” in Apsley. 

Fred’s sense of humour and infectious smile will be greatly missed by all those he has touched.

The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all the staff at Peterborough Regional Health Centre and to his home care nurse Deb Parks for all the care and compassion that was provided to him. 

As per Fred’s wishes, a celebration of life will be held at his “Castle” in Apsley at a later date.

If friends and family desire, Fred loved animals and wildlife. Honourable donations can be made to Hope for Wildlife, Northern Lights Wildlife Society, or the local Humane Society/ Animal shelter of your choice.
