Frederick Leroy Giffin

In loving gratitude for him, we are sharing that Frederic Leroy Giffin, passed away suddenly on Friday, August 19th at the age of 94 in Wildwood, Florida, USA. Dad was born on February 28, 1928 in Sable River, NS, the son of late Robie and Florence (Trefry) Giffin. He lived a long, full life of service and faith. He was passionate about helping people, family visits, and playing cards. He was happily married to Elaine McLeod until her death in 1976. He eventually retired from Bowaters Mersey Paper Company, and then began a new adventure when he married Barbara Scheaffel. They moved to Florida, and this is where he pursued his prison ministry. We will miss his infectious laugh, dry sense of humour, and his Captain’s hat. Dad touched many lives through his “wonderful” outlook on life, faith, and love. We are comforted by visions of a raucous, heavenly crib game with his late siblings, Churchill, Rod, Mona, Charlie, Bruce, and Camillus. He will be missed by his wife, Barbara, sister Pat Giffin (Ron), and his loving daughter Tessa Adams (Mike), Liverpool, NS, five stepdaughters Sandi, Patti, Jean, Meg, and Carol (USA), sons-in-law Len and Dave, grandson Zachary, nieces, nephews, many step-grandchildren. His funeral will take place graveside at the United Baptist Church Cemetery at 205 Church St. in Liverpool on Sunday, October 16 at 1 PM. All are welcome. His memory will always be a blessing.
