RAWLINSON, Fred Passed away suddenly on Monday, December 31, 2018 at age 86. Beloved husband of Lorraine (nee Macfarlane) for 62 years. Loving father of Eric (Mary) and Brenda (predeceased). Cherished grandfather of Carolyne and Mitchell. Predeceased by sister Joan and brother-in-law Gerry. Fred will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by his sister Gwen, sister-in-law Lois, son-in-law Stephen, niece Jocelyne and many other family members. Fred was born in Montreal in 1932 and continued to visit family and friends there regularly after moving to Mississauga in 1979. All those who knew Fred will miss his generous spirit, wonderful sense of humour and willingness to help others. Fred was a true family man; his was a life well-lived, but not without challenges along the way. His saddest moment was the passing of his beloved daughter, Brenda, who lost a courageous brain tumour battle in 2005. For this reason, we ask that, in lieu of flowers, any donations be made to Ian Anderson House ( who provided care for Brenda, comfort for Fred, and will continue Fred's legacy of helping others. A private family service has taken place, however condolences may be made through
