Fred Leroy Judin

-

Fred Leroy Judin was born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan on May 4, 1932.  He was taken by the Lord, his Comforter, on the morning of September 20, 2018 at the High River Hospital.

Fred often reminisced about his youth and told stories of attending school in a one room school house with his two sisters and trapping as a young boy growing up on the farm. Fred’s family was of the upmost importance.  He was known to his children as the strict, yet fun-loving man; many knew him as the story-teller or the jokester. Fred’s work ethic was unsurpassed, a trait that he passed on to all his children.  He was a man of many traits and abilities, who had that “can do attitude” and was never afraid to take on projects that others would hire someone else to do, including building the family home.  He was proud to say he ever only hired one repairperson having done all maintenance himself. Fred was a farmer on the acreage who wore business suits to work as the manager of the Lloydminster Clinic.  He coached and refereed hockey, held interests in genealogy and Model T’s, woodworking and horses.  Fred helped band Peregrine Falcons on the South Saskatchewan River and taught Leadership speech courses and even acted in plays.

Fred glowed when describing meeting the love of his life, Ruby and was an example to all through his 61 years of marriage and the raising of six children.  Together they were consistently involved in the church, community and with family and friends.  They developed friendships with many that crossed their path in life through the church, housesitting, caregiving and travelling.

Fred’s warm and friendly persona was present to the end as he created smiles at the retirement home and hospital.  He led a full life with many years of experiences and blessings and was loved by all that had the privilege to know him. He recently said that, “I can smile and know that through much of my life, one of the attributes that helped me through all of it, was humor.”  We smile as we lovingly remember you.

Fred was predeceased by his wife, Ruby, son Dan (Jennifer) and sister Kay (Harold).

He leaves to mourn: daughters Lorrie (Ric) Morales; Karen (Lyle) Corpe; Peggy Greenfield; sons Tim and Jason (Anne) and his grandsons, Drawsen, Darren, Joshua, Tyrone, Evan, Connor, Lucas and Cody and his granddaughters, Meghan, Shae and Meredith, as well as seven great grandchildren.  He also leaves to mourn his sister Muriel and countless relatives and friends from many walks of life.

A Graveside Service will be held at South Haven Cemetery, 5004 Meridian St NW, Edmonton, on Friday, September 28, 2018 at 1:00pm.

I’m so sorry for your loss, but at the same time can’t thank you enough for sharing your parents with me over the years. Each of them has had such an impact in my life.
Your dad was always ready to help me with a little project, complete with his stretchy yardstick suspenders! 😉 He was always fun to have around, and loved his lemon meringue pie!
Sending my love and prayers to each of you!

Heartfelt sympathy to the Judin family.
I have many fond memories working with your Dad at the Lloydminster Clinic.
You are held in gentle prayer.

Carey Howie

I am very sorry for the loss of your Dad. We may have met when you were quite young as my Dad, Larry Martin, grew up with yours and they continued that friendship through their lives. I remember visiting at your home in Lloyd whenever we were in town and think I remember some summer get togethers. Your Dad was very important to mine and I heard many stories of their days at the ‘dorm’.

Therese Brekko

My sincere sympathy in the loss of your Dad. I have many happy memories of working with your Dad at Lloydminster Clinic. May memories comfort you.

I would like to send my sympathy and prayers to you, Lorrie, Karen, Peggy, Tim and Jason at this time.
Your dad was one of the greatest bosses that I ever worked for. He made work an enjoyable place to work. He always had an unforgettable smile and he loved to joke around with all of us girls at the clinic! I remember that he loved his family dearly.
First time I meet your dad was at your mom and dad’s wedding dance at Banana Belt and they came up to Bob and Laura Nappers’s house. I remember thinking how very tall your dad was.
