It is with great sadness that the family of Frederick Martin Bitango of Lethbridge, announce his sudden passing on March 17, 2021 at the age of 73 years.
As a child, Fred shared so many fond memories of growing up on the family farm near Coaldale, Alberta. Upon graduating from Kate Andrews High School, Fred began a career in sales that he enjoyed thoroughly. One of his life-long passions was playing billiards, eventually managing a pool hall for several years. He loved spending time cooking with close friends, playing card games, and writing short stories and jokes to share with friends and family. Fred was a devout Christian, who found purpose and comfort in his faith for many years.
Frederick is survived by two sons Kyle Bitango and Jerrod (Stephanie) Bitango; grandchildren Miriam, Eden, Hudson Bitango; sisters, Helen Damphousse and Deborah (Ric) Johnston; a nephew and numerous nieces and their families. He was predeceased by his parents Mariyan and Margaret Bitango of Coaldale, Alberta.
The family will gather for a private graveside service at Mountain View Cemetery to celebrate the life of our dear father, grandfather, brother, and friend.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Pancreatic Cancer Canada, 316 – 4211 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario M2P 2A9.
