It is with great sadness the Family of Frederick George Wood announces his sudden passing on Tuesday March 19th2019 at the age of 53. Fred is survived by his caring father, younger siblings and his nephew. Fred had many interests like Army Cadets as a youth, martial arts and followed Buddhist teachings. My fondest memories were being a troublesome little brother and walks to 7-11 on hot summer day. We will not be holding an service and ask that any donations go to the Canadian Mental Health https://saskatoon.cmha.ca/get-involved/donate/and I encourage you to try the Buddhist Meditation Centre of Saskatoon or you can make a donation to them https://www.mahamevnawasaskatoon.com/donations.html.

Kevin Martens began working in funeral service alongside his father while still in high school. After graduating in 1994, he decided to move to Alberta and embark on his funeral service career.
