FRED (ALFRED) DROLET
(1903 - 1976)
Someone said: "When a person dies he is not dead as long as he is remembered." I do believe that. For Fred has been living in my heart for the past 37 years. Now that I am fast approaching 80 years of age I'd like to invite others to help remember him, when I can no longer remember.
Fred was born in Montreal, studied at Loyola College, College of St. Marie and The Universities of Montreal, Laval, and Edmonton and held a B.A., M.A., B.Sc., and Ph.I. At different stages of his life, Fred was a professor, magazine editor, writer, business executive, soldier, world traveller, and linguist who mastered 6 languages. During World War II, as a Public Relations Officer, he was heard regularly on British, Canadian and American radio networks broadcasting from London, England. Later he was attached to the headquarters of General Eisenhower in Paris and Field Marshal Montgomery in Germany. At wars end he was staff officer to Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands.
Fred had a wide circle of friends. His kind and empathetic nature endeared him to a great number of people of various ages and nationalities. In his will, there were more than 30 names mentioned.
