In Loving Memory Of

Fred McGovern


Fred McGovern, resident of Grande Prairie, AB passed away on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, at home, at the age of 57 years.

Fred was born, raised and lived most of his life in Grande Prairie, AB. Born on March 31, 1958, he was the baby of his family.

He was a practical joker who was loved by all. His mischievous grin was ever present. He was always there to lend a hand, he had the biggest heart. He was a family man who did everything for those he loved. He spent the last 665 days of his life preparing to be with his wife.

Fred will be sadly missed by his daughters: Michelle (Chris) Cunningham and Amber McGovern; grandchildren: Tristan, Joel, Jordy, Harmony, Alexa, Brianna, Kenna and Elizabeth; sisters: Yvonne and Irlene; brother George; as well as numerous nieces and nephews and friends.

He was predeceased by his loving wife of 36 years Linda, and his parents Alex and Jess McGovern. He has gone to be with the love of his life whom he longed for every day.

The viewing was held on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at 4:00pm at Oliver’s Funeral Home in Grande Prairie.
