Fredrick, John Mulawka

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Fred on February 22,
2014 in Osoyoos, BC. He was born January 20, 1942 in Embarras River, Alberta. His family moved from the trapline to Ft. McMurray, AB when Fred was a child. In his late teens, he moved to Edmonton and then on to Terrace and Kitimat, BC where he drove bus for Farwest Bus Lines, and then product truck at Eurocan Pulp and Paper. In 2006, he retired to Penticton, BC where he enjoyed his house on the “swamp”. Fred enjoyed fishing, camping, cooking, a good game of crib, and puttering in his beautiful yard and gardens. He cherished his family and loved reminiscing about life.
He is survived by his wife Lynn; daughter, Miranda (Reg); son, Rob (Renee); grandsons, Nik and Liam; sisters, Stella Mulawka (Wally); Joyce Josifov (Rudy), Blanche Polowick (Hank); Rose Fedun; Pauline Kaskey (Mark) and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
