Frederick Fred Hack

April 11, 1914 - July 19, 2010


On Monday July 19, 2010, long time Oliver resident Mr. Frederick William Hack passed away at McKinney Place ECU at the age of 96 years.
Fred was born on April 11, 1914 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His early schooling was in Winnipeg before moving to Oliver on October 30, 1927. Fred attended Testalinda school in 1928 and 1929. He worked with his father until 1935 when he went in as a partner in the wholesale fruit business. Fred sold the business to Slade & Stewart wholesale produce firm from Vancouver and opened a warehouse in Penticton and worked as a truck driver salesman until joining the RCAF in 1942 until 1945. He then returned to the same company as a salesman for two years.
Fred then moved back to Oliver
in 1948 and went in to vegetable growing and joined his dad and brother Edward. They formed the company F.W. Hack & Sons Ltd.
Fred was an ardent skier and assisted in starting two ski areas: Twin Lakes and Morning Star in the early 1940’s and 1950’s before Apex was thought of.
The Hack’s sold their company and moved back to Penticton to retire in 1973. After his wife Hazel passed away in 1988, Fred moved back to Oliver and married Mary Smith in 1989. Together they loved travelling by trailer or motorhome and spending winters in Arizona. Mary passed away in April of 1997. Fred continued living in Oliver and continued his travels.
Fred then married Dorothy Nichol on June 14, 2000.
Fred will be fondly remembered by his loving family including wife of twelve years Dorothy Nichol Hack of Oliver; step-daughter Sandra Nichol; stepson Keith Nichol of Oliver; step grandchildren Taryn (Ian) Brown, Spencer (Sally) Wells of Revelstoke; daughter Lenore Hack Zender of Bellingham, WA; grandchildren Rev.

Relation: friend

To all the family and friends of Fred- while it is sad that Fred has passed on, what a joy it has been to know Fred over my life time. Whether as a Legion member,a vegetable grower, a friend, an employer, or as a mentor for many young folks, Fred shared his wisdom and his love of life. H e will be missed by all of us, but his humour, his laughter and his person will always be remembered with deep affection… my love to all and remember Fred’s smile and enjoy life to the fullest. Jim Mac Naughton, Cape Breton NS.

Relation: Grandfather
