It’s with heavy hearts, we, the family of Frederick "Fred" David Entwistle, 89, of Stewiacke announce his passing in the Colchester East Hants Health Centre on Wednesday, May 1, 2024. Born in Brantford, Ontario in 1935, he was the only son of the late Wilfred Hampson Entwistle (1903-1986) and Jean (Jane McGiffin Murray) (1905-1984).

Besides his parents, he was also predeceased by his only sister, Dorothy Jean (Entwistle) Stutter (1933-2020) and brother-in-law Clifford Ernest Stutter (1931-2018). Dad was the last surviving member of his immediate family.

Dad was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Dad loved fishing, spending time with family and friends, working with his hands and singing in the choir. Dad was the owner of Full Line Enterprises in Stewiacke, a millwright by trade, he could fix almost anything.

Dad is survived our mother, Margaret "Betty" Elizabeth (Lane) Entwistle, Shortt’s Lake; and us, his children, Shelley Anne (Entwistle) Wentzell, Bible Hill, Gordon David Entwistle, Shortt’s Lake, Tammy Lane (Entwistle) Devlin, Pleasant Valley and Frederick Andrew Entwistle, Stewiacke, whom he worked and lived with. Dad was called Grampie by his grandchildren, Samantha Elizabeth Nicole Wentzell, Bible Hill, R Samuel Devlin, Fort McMurray, Alberta, Abigail Jett Devlin, Pleasant Valley; he is also survived by his son-in-law, David John Devlin, Pleasant Valley; and Tammy Lynn Milbury-Turner, Hilden, he affectionately called "Tammy2", who also called him Dad. He is also survived by his three nieces and their families, Jeannine (Stutter) Powell, Red Deer, Alberta, Rose (Stutter) Kirk, and Valorie (Stutter) Logan, both of Victoria, British Columbia. There are many others who called him Dad, Uncle, Grampie and friend.

We, the family, wish to thank the First Responders, the ER Doctors, Dr. David Henderson and his team in the Palliative Care Unit at the Colchester East Hants Health Centre, for the care shown to our father/Grampie. Gratitude and appreciation go to the VON Home Care and Nurses, for your compassionate and loving care while Dad/Grampie was at home.

In keeping with Dad’s wishes the family will hold a celebration of life 1 pm on Saturday, July 13, 2024, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 148 Evergreen Drive, Salmon River. If so desired, a donation in Fred’s memory can be made to the Colchester East Hants VON or the Colchester East Hants Hospice Society.
