It is with complete sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Frederick Hugh Pardo at the age of 58 years. He is the son of Jean Pardo-Fenwick and the late Frederick T. Pardo. He is survived by his beloved wife and soul-mate Cathy (Calhoun). The best Dad to his children Nicole (Florin) Neaga, Laura Pardo (Nathan Waddick), and Frederick Daniel Pardo. Loving Papa to Hayden, Caitlin, Tristan, Logan, Tierian, Sebastian. Big brother to Margaret Pardo (Moe Trepanier) and the late Melanie J. Brother-in-law to Tony (Kathy), Greg (Nora), and Michael (Shelly) Calhoun. He was a loving Uncle Hughie to many nieces and nephews. Step-brother to the late Ross (Kathy), Bill, Andrew (Jo) and Susan Fenwick. Brothers from another mother John VanVeen (Peggy) and Pat (Linda) McGuigan. Fur children Qilak, Satchmo, Katness, and grand furbaby Adobe. Predeceased by his step-father JAF Fenwick, his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Phyllis and James Calhoun, brothers-in-law David and Ronnie, and sister-in-law Leslie.
In addition to having a great love and devotion for his family, Hugh loved the outdoors and nature. He was happiest surrounded by the bush with his wife by his side, navigating off the beaten trails and waterways. Hugh was a member of the Sheet Metal Union Local 235 and a Trustee on the Pension and Benefit Board for said union. He was also the Secretary Treasurer for Craford Cemetery.
The passing of Hugh has left a hole in our lives that can never be filled. Friends wishing to remember Hugh are asked by the family that in lieu of flowers a memorial donation be made to Tree Canada (http://www.treecanada.ca), a non-profit charity dedicated to improving the lives of Canadians by planting trees or to Craford Cemetery.

David Fuller taking place at Trinity Anglican Church (59 Ellen Street, Blenheim) on Thursday, August 1, 2019 at 1:00 pm. Cremation will follow.
