My sincere condolences. I an happy that I had the opportunity to phone him last year to compliment him on his memoirs "Survival". I was deeply moved. God bless.
This is a very belated message from an old friend. I took Fred along for one of his early arctic trips (and my last of 12 seasons) in July 1965. We went to Ogac Lake, off the south coast of Frobisher Bay, where I collected plankton for research in a makeshift lab at Frobisher Airbase. He had boundless enthusiasm for his surroundings, and I savoured this again on later trips to Sable Island and during a few other chance meetings. I greatly enjoyed his company, and savour his written legacies. Ian McLaren, Halifax
I just heard of your loss. My sincere condolences to the family.

The last time - also the first time - we met at your home for lunch, we were so moved by the warm and simple hospitality you showed us. For me, having known and admired Fred's writing and photography ever since the 1960s, I was struck by his humanity and wisdom, but also his toughness - an extraordinary man. The fact that beyond a shared love of photography in the Canadian Arctic, we have had the experience of living for the last two years in the land of his birth makes us feel a special link to Fred and his extraordinary life, the first part of which he so wonderfully described in his book "Survival".
We send you and your family our deepest sympathy.

We were deeply saddened to hear of Fred's passing and so sorry for your loss. Our condolences to you, Aurel, René and families. As you know we've known Fred for many years – I first met him in Churchill in 1981 – and we always enjoyed his annual visits to our home in Prince Edward Island when he came to photograph harp seals in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It usually included a meal of mussels, good wine, engaging conversation and always stories of his extraordinary adventures throughout the world. In recent years we have enjoyed our visits with you both when we occasionally dropped by on our way through Montreal. Fred was a wonderful man and a great inspiration to me in my own photography career. I felt privileged to have known him. His friendship meant a great deal to us both. He will be missed. With deepest sympathies,
John & Dianne

Dear Maud. From my back balcony I have fond memories of seeing both you and Fred enjoying a quiet supper with a good bottle of wine as you waited for the sun to set.

I had met Mr.Fred Bruemmer when I was studying professional photography at Dawson Collage in 2001.
I was a foreign student from Izmir, Turkey. The nature of Canada was amazing for me. Books of Mr.Fred Bruemmer showed the remote parts beautifully. I had bought his books in Montreal. After seeing his works I wanted to meet him. I called him and he invited me for a visit. It was great to listen his experiences on photography.
I like to share the link of my interview with Mr. Bruemmer; here is the link:
greetings to all and thanks a lot Mr.Fred Bruemmer.
