Condolence from Gary Christie, Director Nottawasaga Steelheaders on June 30th, 2019 4:18 PM

Dear Fred Jr and Family

We are very saddened to hear of the recent passing of Fred’s father and just after the passing of his father in law. Many may have never had the chance to meet Fred Dobbs (Jr). He is one of the nicest persons you’d ever have the privilege of meeting and knowing. Fred was brought up well by his parents. Fred works for the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority and is the guiding light for our organization, The Nottawasaga Steelheaders, providing the direction for our stream rehab projects. He is one of the most knowledgeable fisheries and stream biologists, in our province as well. We are very fortunate to have him as a friend and advocate for the preservation of our beloved Nottawasaga watershed .
On behalf of our organization and our members past and present, I would like to convey our sincerest condolences to Fred, his wife Traci, the children and the entire family. We hope that strength and fonder memories find their way back to heal all.❤️

Condolence from Gary and Janice Christie on June 30th, 2019 4:27 PM

Dear Fred Jr and family

Janice and I are very saddened to hear of the passing of your dad. Your father was very proud of your achievements in life and accomplishments in the cause of conservation.
We are privileged to have you a friend and hope that you, Traci, your mom and children will find the strength to make the fond memories sweeter with time.
Wishing you all peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold your hearts.❤️


Janice and Gary Christie
