Obituary for Fred "David" Krish

Fred “David” Krish
January 08, 1956 – January 09, 2024

It is with sadness we announce the passing, on Tuesday, January 09, 2024, of Fred David Krish at the Foothills Medical Centre, in Calgary Alberta at the age of 68.

David was born on January 08, 1956, to Lorraine Krish and the late Fred Krish of Coleman, Alberta. David was Father to David and Lindsey (Cole) and Grandfather to Tristin, Bailey, and Charlie. As well, he is survived by his sisters, Shannon (John) and Joann and their families.

David was an avid hunter, fisherman and musician/songwriter. With the closing of Coleman Collieries, he left the Crowsnest Pass in 1984 to continue his career as a Journeyman Electrician. Tumbler Ridge and Quintette Coal was to be his home for the next three years, before moving to Vancouver Island and starting his own contracting business. He later returned to the Crowsnest Pass, making it his “home base”, while working in a variety of areas across Canada. He later returned to retire there.

The family of David Krish would like to thank the staff at the Crowsnest Pass Medical Centre and the Doctors and staff at the Foothills Medical Centre, Neurology Department, for their care in his final days. A private Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
