Fred Earl Tinkham

January 11, 1945 — March 7, 2024


Peacefully with friends by his side on March 7, 2024, Fred Earl Tinkham passed away at C.E.E. Hospital in Petrolia at the age of 79 years.  Fred will be missed by many close friends and all who knew him.  He is predeceased by his parents Earl (1976) and Freda (2000). 

He was a retired member of Local 793 Hoisting Engineers.  Fred was always willing to help solve problems, to help repair and give advice when it was needed.  He worked building his 1940 Ford Pickup and the 1928 Tee Bucket Roadster and too many projects to mention.

 As per Fred’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a gathering of friends will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Br 62 (286 Front St. N. Sarnia) on Sunday March 24th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

 Sympathy may be expressed through donations to the Sarnia & District Humane Society

 A special thank you to Dr. Lam, Dr. Cooper, Dr. Tam and the staff of C.E.E. Hospital for all their care and compassion.

 Arrangements entrusted to the D. J. Robb Funeral Home & Cremation Centre (102 N. Victoria St, Sarnia). Memories, photos or messages of condolence may be shared at
