Alfredo James (Fred) Facco
January 22, 1929 – January 5, 2016
It is with great sadness and much love that our family says goodbye to Fred Facco, who passed away on January 5, 2016 at the Royal Alexandra Hospital at the age of 86 years.
He will always be remembered by his loving family; wife of 62 years Johanna; sons: David (Lois), Jimmy and Ernie; grandchildren: Landon (Quinn) and Braden. He will also be remembered as well by his extended family and friends. Fred is also survived by his sisters: Nita (Ken) and Rose (Ray).
He was predeceased by his parents Erminio and Pearl as well as a brother Dave (Helen).
Born is Saunders Creek, Alberta on January 22, 1929. Fred lived in the region until moving out and joining the Albert Forest Service in 1956. Fred’s career with the AFS and later Public Lands brought him and family to Edmonton in 1966, where they still reside today.
Cremation has taken place at his request and a celebration of Fred’s life with close family and friends will take place at Nordegg at a later date, to be confirmed this summer.
A very special thank you to Carmella and all of her wonderful staff on Ward 43 at the Royal Alexandra Hospital (as well as attending physicians).
In lieu of flowers family has requested that memorials gifts be made to the Royal Alexandra Foundation or a charity of ones choice.
