Charles ''Fred'' Frederick Shier

January 3, 1933 ~ March 2, 2022 (age 89)


In loving memory of
Mr. Charles Frederick ‘’Fred’’ Shier
January 3, 1933 – March 2, 2022


It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Charles Frederick Shier on Wednesday March 2, 2022 at his home in Hunta at the age of 89.  He was the son of the late Charles and Bessie Shier.   He is survived by his spouse of 64 years Evelyn (née Sheldon), and his sons James (Lynn) and Doug, and his sister-in-law Elaine.  Predeceased by his son Tom (Lorraine).  He also leaves behind five grandchildren Charlie (Chrissy), Greg (Chelsea), Laura (Mark), Jesse, and Michelle (Donovan), as well as eight great grandchildren (Madison, Clara, Ava, Thomas, Callie, Emma, Everett, and Georgia).   He was predeceased by his brothers and sisters Thelma, Harry, Glen, Gordon, Helen, Jean, Olive, and Bruce.  Survived also by many loved nieces and nephews, friends, acquaintances, and business associates.  With his brother Bruce he operated B&F Shier for many years before passing the reins on to the next generations.  If you knew Fred, you would know that he was a lover of stories and tales.   While travelling highway 11, he could often recount tales about individuals that lived along the way, often not stopping the story telling until he had reached his destination.  He will be missed. 

Family will receive friends on Saturday March 5, 2022 from 9:30 am till 10:45 am followed by an extended family celebration of his life at the Irvine & Irvine funeral home chapel.

The interment will take place at the Cochrane Civic Cemetery at a later date.

If desired, memorial donations may be made to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada, and would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to send online condolences to his family or to share your memories of Fred, please visit
