Age 55, of Dartmouth (formerly of Kline Heights) passed away April 27/20 peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones. Son of Carolyn Slaunwhite and the late Fred Brackett. After a five month courageous battle with cancer God has taken him home.
Fred is survived by his multi decade sweetheart, Dan; mother, Carolyn, Dartmouth; sister, Carla (Jim), Dartmouth; niece, Lacey (Terry), Dartmouth; nephew, Ryan (Nikki), Sackville, great niece, Marissa & his fur baby Precious. He was predeceased by his father Fred, brother Carl James & many aunts & uncles.
Anyone who has ever met Fred would agree he was a kind hearted man with an infectious smile. His compassion for people led him to becoming a CCA with Northwood home care. This was his greatest accomplishment. Fred’s passions were gardening, playing guitar, baking he was also artistic & enjoyed a glass of wine. You would find Fred at his favourite Tim's on Osborne Dr. chatting with the parking lot gang.
A special thank you to Shannon for all he did & the Palliative Care Unit & Von services.
Arrangements and cremation are under the care of J. Albert Walker Funeral Home (2005) Ltd. Memorial donations can be made to the Cancer Society. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
