The family of Frederick E. A. Humble (Fred) announces his passing September 17, 2021 at Neill Hall, Fredericton, N.B.  Fred, the only son of Arthur Humble and Mary (Jarvis) Humble was born on May 02, 1941 in Cross Creek, York County, NB. 

Fred graduated from the Stanley High School in 1960 and NBCC Moncton in 1963.  He was employed with Diamond Construction Limited for 35 years as their Accountant and Office Manager. 

Fred is survived by his wife, Carol (MacFarlane) of 58 years;  son, Laurie of Calgary and wife Lynn with children, Drew, Sarah and stepsons, Cameron (Melissa) and Cole,  son, Kevin of Nashwaak Bridge and his children, Janelle (Jordan Dickinson) and Garrett. He is also survived by three sisters, Isabel (Floyd) Hunter of Burton, Elsie Hunter and Margaret Woodcock both of Fredericton; Carol’s siblings, David (Nancy) MacFarlane of Nashwaak Bridge, Phyllis Miller of Fredericton; brother-in-Law, David Steele of Fredericton, Ruth (Russel) Hay of Williamsburg.  Fred was predeceased by brothers-in-law, Arnold Hunter, Ronald Woodcock, and Alex Miller, and Carol’s sister, Marylin Steele.

Fred and Carol resided in Nashwaak Bridge for 55 years in the home that they built together amongst many family and friends. Fred was very active in the church and community. He loved all sports, both participating and coaching, and being able to watch his sons and grandchildren participate over the years. He was a proud member of the New Brunswick Liberal Party. Fred felt one of his greatest accomplishments was bringing the first nursing home (Nashwaak Villa) to Stanley, New Brunswick. One of Fred’s greatest pleasures was spending time at Mactaquac Provincial Park with his four grandchildren and great nieces (Meghan and Brianne Fullarton) and his close friends Duane and Marcia Hilchie and their family from Rothsay New Brunswick.

One of Fred’s favorite hobbies was making beautiful, fine pieces of furniture, most notably was hope chests, end tables, plant stands, lamps, and of course a changing table and cradle for his grandchildren.

The Family would like to send a special thank you to staff of Neill Hall for their exceptional care and kindness to Fred and the family; also, to homemakers, Sandy Humble and Rob Landry.

Fred was a former member of the Nashwaak Bridge United Church of Canada and a member of St. Peters Presbyterian Church of Stanley, N.B.
