James Alfred (Fred) Calhoun August 2nd, 1944 - August 11th, 2013 Fred died peacefully very early Sunday morning after a lengthy struggle with prostate cancer. He is survived by his beloved children James and Sarah, his siblings John, Colleen and Frances, their spouses Tannis, Al, and George, and his many nieces and nephews.
The Guest Book is expired.
A teacher of forty-four years in Surrey, Fred was a lover of history and literature and this love infused his lessons with an enthusiasm for learning that touched the lives of thousands of students.
A memorial service will be held at Cooke's Presbyterian Church in Chilliwack, at 2:00pm, Saturday August 17th.
In lieu of flowers we request that those wishing to honour Fred's memory do so by purchasing a book for themselves or a loved one to celebrate the joy of reading, or by planting an oak tree in some carefully selected spot, where one day they might remember him in its shade.
