Fred was born on March 30, 1916, son of Fred and Margaret Jackson at Regina, Saskatchewan where he was raised and received his education. In 1927, the family moved to Lake Valley, Saskatchewan to farm. In the early 1930's, Fred started doing custom farming on the Prairies with his father, Fred Sr., and Uncle Tom. In 1946, he met and married Elva Jean Moody and they purchased a farm in the Macdonald area. They farmed in Macdonald until 1973 when they retired and moved to the west side of Portage. In 2000, Fred and Elva moved to The Dalton Grove Estates in Portage. Fred was a member of Trinity United Church and was actively involved in community and church activities. He loved golfing and curling and was a long-standing member of the Portage Golf Club and the Masters Curling Club. He enjoyed travelling. Over the years he made several trips to the west coast and travelled with friends to Alaska, Newfoundland, Hawaii, California and Texas. Special times were spent playing cards with friends, socializing with family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
