Frederick Duncan MacPherson

November 10, 1925 - February 23, 2022

Heatherton, NL


It is with great sadness that the family of the late Frederick MacPherson announce his peaceful passing on February 23, 2022, at the age of 96.  He was surrounded by family members and friends at the Charles L. LeGrow Health Centre in Port aux Basque. 


 Fred leaves to mourn his sons: Rick, Scott, Mark (Erin) and daughters: Claire (Lou) and Melanie (Roger), grandchildren: Michelle (Trevor), Brenda (Gar) and Jordan, plus his many great-grandchildren.  Fred is also survived by his brother Roderick and longtime close companion, Ethel Gale.  


Fred was pre-deceased by his wife: Patricia, parents: John and Clarabelle, brothers: Allan and Joe, and sisters: Clara, Edna, Mary and Millie.  He also leaves behind a large circle of extended family members and friends. 


He was known for his love of life, his wonderful laugh, his charity and being a friend to all.  

Fred lived a varied and fulfilled life; from working on merchant ships to fishing, farming and wood harvesting.  He also had a rewarding career as Manager of the Provincial Seed Potato Farm.  His later years were spent on his beef and vegetable farm in Heatherton, playing cards and receiving many friends and visitors.  


Per his wishes Fred has been cremated.  A celebration of his life will be held in the summer of 2022. 


Fred’s family and friends want to thank the kind doctors, nurses and care givers at the Charles L. LeGrow Health Centre and everyone for their kindness and thoughtful words.  In Fred’s memory, please smile, laugh or do an act of kindness to friends, neighbours or those in need.
