FREDERICK (FRED/RICK) PETER HOOPER
September 24, 1946 - June 24, 2023
It is with a profound sense of loss that we announce the peaceful passing of Fred, following a short illness, on Saturday, June 24, with his wife and brother at his side.
Fred will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 22 years, Marilyn Corbitt, his brother, Mark (Charline) of Victoria, BC, daughter Eva, sons Richard (Amanda), and Brad, grandchildren Danielle, Brianna, Courtney, Sofia and great grandchildren Grace and Julianna.
Fred spent 26 years as an electrician with the Seven Oaks School Division and for several of those years, he also served as treasurer for the division union. In addition, he was proud of his many years as an active Lions Club member.
Fred was passionate about many things. He was the designated keeper of the family recipes. Even following his retirement, his love of cooking had him still taking orders from his division colleagues for Christmas baking, cabbage rolls and perogies. When it came to gardening, he generously provided vegetables to his neighbours. Whether playing with colleagues, friends or acquaintances, he appreciated a good card game. And of course, fishing, especially his trips to George Lake. At his retirement he celebrated with a special fishing trip and lodge stay in the Northwest Territories which he enjoyed tremendously.
Fred was an avid sports fan and having been born in Regina, when it came to football, he remained loyal to his roots, always cheering for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
An informal time of remembrance will be held at 4 Harvest Way, East St. Paul, on Sunday July 9, 2023, at 4pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Fred, you will live in our hearts forever.
