Fred was born in Township Dunn, Ontario on March 23, 1883. Before World War I, he was a partner in a law firm in Calgary, together with John Brownlee.

Albright) confidence in the Peace country and filed on a homestead at 8-72-9-W6. However, he was killed in action at Passchendaele on October 26, 1917 without having had the opportunity to develop his land. His grave marker in Larch Wood Cemetery is inscribed with “Who was faithful to Him that appointed Him Heb. 3.2”
