Obituary of Frederick George FitzPatrick

FITZPATRICK, Frederick George


It is with deep sadness that the family of Frederick George FitzPatrick, announces his sudden passing at his home in Toronto on March 3rd, 2021. Frederick was a graduate of Frontenac Secondary School, Queen’s University (Honours deg. Fine Arts), and  the University of British Columbia (Masters deg. Fine Arts). Fred had a passion for art in all forms, from sculpture to architecture, sketching pen and ink drawings, to painting. Fred keenly studied the art and architecture wherever he travelled, in Italy, Ireland, Morocco, Viet Nam, Vancouver, and especially in his beloved city of Toronto. Although Fred began his career as a sculptor, he spent the last 33 years of his life, working as a scenic painter with the American Film industry (IATSE) in Toronto. He loved his work and made many life-long friends there. Predeceased by his parents James Alexander and Margaret Layton FitzPatrick. Survived by his cherished son Wesley James FitzPatrick, dear friend Heidi McLeod, brother Terrence James (Nancy), sister Gay Frances Keithly, nephews Adam and Ryan FitzPatrick, Sean Keithly and niece, Margo Keithly. Fred will be sadly missed by his many friends from high school and university and from the film industry. A private family burial has been held at Cataraqui Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made in Fred’s memory to the Kidney Foundation or to a charity of choice.
