Obituary

Marshall; Fred WWII Vet.

Fred passed away suddenly on August 18 in his 98th year. Predeceased by his loving wife Shirley (nee McCracken)(1998) and daughter Marlene (1962). Loving Dad to Brenda (Don) Truscello, Carrie (Dan)Pust, Bill (Kim) and grand-dad to Dylan, Emily, Gary, Jaeden and Kyle.
At 19, Fred signed up for WWII and left Ceylon for Europe, where he became a sound ranger locating enemy guns. He came home without a scratch after “winning the war” and proceeded to land his dream job as a Conservation Officer, managing both wildlife and poachers. His job took the family to live in Alliston, Everett, Pefferlaw, Galt (now Cambridge) and finally, his perfect place in Massie, where he settled for 45 years.
Blessed with a long life, Fred enjoyed many interests, all connected to the natural world, from painting wildlife to fly fish tying to gardening; fishing, hunting and trapping. There wasn’t a tree leaf or animal track he couldn’t identify. And he enjoyed teaching the lore to children, nurturing their wonder at nature.
He also enjoyed watching cartoons with or without children, and was known for his sense of humour and wit. Fred was a master of the zinger long before it was even a word, as the dedicated, professional, warm staff of Rockwood Terrace can attest to.
We would like to thank everyone at Rockwood for taking such good care of our Dad, including his roommate Bob Goldsmith. For the year and a half Fred lived there, he (who himself had been a helluva good cook)
looked forward to every meal, enjoyed much fond banter, and appreciated the constant care that was taken for his well-being.
The deer around Massie are sleeping more easy tonight. He was also a helluva good shot. And a really good Dad.
A private family service has taken place and Fred was laid to rest with his late wife in the Flesherton Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be gratefully appreciated. Online donations and condolences at www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca 888-924-2810

My deepest sympathies to the family on the passing of Mr. Marshall. Thinking of Carrie, Brenda, Billie and Dan very much at this time. I have very fond memories of Mr. Marshall as a little girl growing up beside the Marshall clan in Massie. His work with the Ministry of Lands and Forests was exceptional and his love and care toward all of us young ones always shone through in daily life. Again, thinking of the family at this difficult time and may you find comfort with each other and in the amazing memories of a life well lived.
Sincerely,
Denise Nuttall

You probably won’t remember me but I knew you when you lived in Massie. I just wanted to say how sorry I am on hearing of your dad’s passing.

He lived a long and healthy life and was always a great friend and someone I could trust. Don and I tried to get to see him at least once a year until covid 19 arrived.

I worked with your Dad in Hespeler for the Department of Lands and Forests from 1969 -74 sometime in there he transferred to Owen Sound and I followed in 1974. Fred was on the hiring committee and picked me out a lot of experienced CO’s to come to Owen Sound.

We worked great together, I would go to him with problems rather than my supervisor because I knew he could be trusted

and he always looked out for new staff. He had a wonderful career with the ministry and there’s very few of the old guard left .

Fred was the oldest living retired CO in the province and the best fox trapper I’ve ever known. He will be missed.

Again my deepest condolences to you and your family he’s in a better place now with your Mom and the rest of your family.

God Bless all of You

Sincerely

Joel Tost (Retired CO #239).
