MITCHELL, Frederick 'Fred' Mitchell Obituary | Print |

MITCHELL, Frederick 'Fred' -

Mitchell_FredFrederick Mitchell, 86, of Oakville ON passed away peacefully on April 17th, 2015.

What a great life! Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland on January 3rd 1929, from humble beginnings Fred went on to be so many things:

Family Man: Husband to Margaret for over 65 years; Father to Terry and Colin; Father-in-Law to Crystal; Grandfather to Declan and Riley; Brother to Bobby, Ernest & John; Brother-in-Law to June, Eva, Roy, Ronnie & May; Uncle to Hillary, Martin & Nigel.

Student: as a young man he put himself through Queens University in Belfast earning a Mechanical Engineering degree; later in life Fred enrolled at York University in Toronto where he graduated with a BA in Mathematics at the tender age of 50.

Teacher: he took the family to Sierra Leone in western Africa for three years in the early 1960’s to teach school children in Freetown. Fred went on to teach at George Brown College in Toronto from 1972 until he retired in 1994.

Engineer: Fred immigrated to Canada in the mid 1960’s without a job but soon landed at de Havilland as an Engineer and then brought the family over. He was part of the design team that built the HMCS Bras d’Or which, at a top speed of 63 knots, was the fastest naval ship in the world.

Handyman: For 37 years he was the most renowned “do it yourselfer” in southeast Oakville; he had a tool for every job and would take the time to help anyone in the neighbourhood when something needed fixing.

Golfer: he had a life-long passion for the game which he instilled in his sons. His 1963 Freetown G&C Championship trophy is proudly displayed to this day. Fred played weekly well into his 80’s.

Painter: in his early retirement years he was a fixture at Sheridan College art classes; one of his watercolours was awarded first prize in the 1995 Oakville Arts Society Juried Show.

More than anything else, to everyone he met over his 86 years, Fred was a true Gentleman.

Sit back and kick your feet up Dad; it was the only thing you didn’t do while you were with us.

A special thank you goes out to the teams at Acclaim Health, Queens Ave Retirement Home and OTMH for all their help.

Memorial vistiation will be held in Oakville on Monday, April 20th. A private funeral service will follow for the family.

In lieu of flowers, and consistent with Fred always wanting to help everybody, a donation to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
