FITZSIMMONS, Frederick Kells Fitzsimmons   -  August 29, 1945 – November 11, 2022 

On Friday November 11th Fred was reunited with the love of his life, Patricia.  

Together they shared a life filled with adventure, friendship, family, and above all, a profound love for one another. 

Fred spent his final years caring for Pat with unwavering devotion, and his adoration and commitment to her continued for the remainder of his days.  

Fred was a character who loved to share the stories of his life. 

From the shipyards of Belfast, travelling the world in the Merchant Navy, studying Mechanical Engineering at Strathclyde University, and many years spent in leadership roles across the Nuclear Industry, he had endless tales to tell – always delivered with a sense of humour like no other. 

Beloved husband and best friend to Pat for 50 years and beyond.  Proud father of Jason (Rhonda), Paul (Kelly), Adam (Sarah) and Ashley (Mark). 

Granda of Connor, Brodie, Abbie, Molly, Finn, Cole, Ollie, Jane, Sam and Maisie.  Fred will be remembered by his family for his strength as a father, the delight he took in playing pranks to entertain the grandkids (and himself), and of course the love he had for Pat. 

Memories of happy times will remain in our hearts and knowing that he is at peace with Pat will heLp us heal and celebrate the incredible man that he was. 

A Celebration of Fred’s life will be held on Sunday November 20th from 1:00 – 4:00 pm at THE ADMIRAL'S WALK CLUBHOUSE, 90 Shipway Avenue, Newcastle.

Memorial Donations may be made to Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Society of Canada.
