LEGGE, Frederick Gordon
Frederick Gordon Legge
passed away peacefully on Monday, May 27, 2002 at his home in Robinsons at the age of 64 years. Fred, the Newfoundland Herald Distributor on the West Coast for 22 years is survived by his loving wife Barbara, his son Shane with wife Robin of Halifax, NS and their 2 week old son Kabel, who never met his grandfather, and by his daughter Natasha and husband, Boyd Morris, with their son Owen. Fred's parents were the late William E. and the late Leona Legge of Robinsons. Fred has three brothers: Charles (Phyllis), Robert (Sarah) and Bernard (Elizabeth); and five sisters: Edith (the late Isaac) Hulan, the late Elsie (Gerald) Luther, Cathy (Peter) Hurst, Sheila (George) Coffin and Marilyn (Neal) Kinden. Fred was a devoted husband and father whose family meant everything to him. Nothing gave him more pleasure than spending time with them and in recent years with his grandson, Owen. Nowhere was he happier than around his home and garden arranging everything to his liking. Fred ("the Man with the Hat") as he was so frequently referred to by any who didn't know his name) had numerous friends who visited with him through the years, largely due to his engaging and friendly manner. Like his father before him, he possessed that well-known Nfld. trait of "the storyteller". He could take a simple, ordinary event that most people would dismiss as not worth mentioning and relate it in such a colorful and often humourous way that it gave great delight to the listener. He took with him an encyclopedic knowledge of the Robinsons area. He delved extensively into local history and could narrate fascinating accounts of the unwritten folklore. He loved nothing more than piecing together local mysteries of the past with that typical storyteller's charm which allows imagination to provide details when facts fail. That, we will all miss! In the end, we can say only that he lived, he loved, and he was loved. A memorial service will be held at St. George Church in Robinsons at 2 p.m., Friday, May 31. Those who wish may send flowers or make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Funeral arrangements are under the supervision of Fillatre's Funeral Home, Stephenville Crossing.
