AMOR, Fred John (1946 – 2011). Shipwright and craftsman, Fred grew up in White Rock and was a familiar figure at the pier in the early 1960’s. After many years as a shipwright at

Britannia Shipyards, Fred went on to design and build the Amor 40 line of cruising yachts, as proprietor of Amor Marine in Steveston. Among many other projects, he conducted the restoration of the Charles H. Cates in 1993/94. Later he moved to Gabriola, but he frequently returned to the Lower Mainland when projects beckoned. Meticulous and universally admired as a mentor, he was always willing to share his expertise. He died at home on Gabriola, after a long battle with cancer, on December 27. He leaves his wife Nancy, stepsons John and Duncan, mother Betty, brothers Norman, Lorne and John, extended family and many, many friends. A celebration of life gathering was held on Gabriola on Jan. 7
