Spaniard's Bay -
John Frederick Barrett
- Saturday was lovely and sunny, a soft wind was blowing and the air was crisp; it was an ideal December day. For Fred Barrett, an employee of the United States Naval Base at Argentia for almost twenty years, the day provided him with the opportunity to spend a pleasant afternoon with his wife motoring and to do some shopping, a pastime they both enjoyed, especially since Mr. Barrett recovered from recent surgery for a spinal defect. On Saturday he felt exceptionally fit and there was not the least indication that by nine o'clock that evening his life's day as we know it would come to an abrupt end. He was enjoying a television program when he collapsed and although medical aid was summoned immediately nothing could be done. Fred departed this life peacefully as he had spent the forty-eight years that he lived it.
Fred Barrett was a quiet, likeable chap, and very devoted to his family, his home, his work and his church. He was never home long enough to take an active part in community activities, but his financial assistance could always be relied upon, for Fred never turned anyone away from his door empty handed; his private acts of charity are known only to those who received them.
Surviving him are his aged mother, his wife (the former Millicent Parrott), one brother, Hugh, two sisters, Annie (Mrs. Gordon Jones of Spaniard's Bay) and Mabel (Mrs. Walter Dawe of Toronto.)
He was a member of Lodge Heart's Content AF and AM and members of that order attended his funeral, which was held on Monday afternoon. He was laid to rest in the family plot following a burial service at Holy Redeemer Church, conducted by the rector, Rev. E. Willis.
To those who are suddenly bereaved we offer our heartfelt sympathy.
"May the soul of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
