Fred attended Nanton School, finished grades 8 and 9 by correspondence and received his high school education at St. Joseph's College in Yorkton. During his high school era, Fred was a member of the military reserves but was not called to duty due to the end of World War II. After graduation, Fred worked on the family farm, was secretary for Nanton School and had a brief employment with the Department of Highways. He had fond memories and many stories to tell about his adventures in his 'bush camp' employment in Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan. In the fall of 1953 his life was to change forever as a result of an innocent purchase of a pie at a Fall Social and Dance at the Smokeside School near Homefield. The pie was made by a 17 year old beauty named Martha Macuick. This led to romance and eventually marriage. On July 11, 1954, Fred and Martha were married in Ituna and celebrated their special day at the Macuick family farm in the Homefield district. Their honeymoon was spent travelling to Ontario visiting Niagara Falls and spending 6 weeks working on a tobacco farm in Simcoe, Ontario before returning to the farm (NW 7-26-8W2M) that Fred purchased from his brother John in 1952. His farm was expanded after the purchase of a quarter section of land from his father Demetrius and another 2 quarters from Mike Mohyla.

Fred loved mixed farming, especially raising cattle. He was noted for his skills in the care of cattle during the calving season and was sought after for his knowledge by his neighbours. He loved the outdoors and was widely known for his true passion … hunting and trapping. His favourite seasons were spring and fall. During this time Fred was alone on his trap lines and enjoyed hunting for deer, moose, geese and ducks in the fall. He was recognized by the Hudson Bay Company for his trapping skills and was awarded Trapper of the Year on several occasions. He was a member of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation. Fred's twilight years were spent on the family farm; he enjoyed gardening and helping his sons with farm work. His greatest joy were his grandchildren … he loved each one with a great deal of passion and warmth. They are his legacy and his was proud of each and every one. Gido will be sadly missed. In 2002, Fred accidentally broke his hip and this required surgery. Due to his age, recovery was slow. Fred became a resident of Ituna Pioneer Lodge were he received excellent care. He longed to go home to the farm he loved but poor health prevented this from occurring until this week. He made his final visit to the farm during his trip from Bailey's Funeral Home to Ituna. The farm will not be the same without him …husband, Dad and Gido. The journey is complete and you are now in God's hands. We will always love you.

Martha Fedyk (nee Macuick) late of Homefield, passed away peacefully at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre on Monday, April 28, 2003 at the age of 66 years. Mom was born on March 05, 1937 on the family farm located on Section 8-26-9-W2M in the Homefield district of Saskatchewan. She was the eighth child born to Steve and Mary Macuick who were born in Galecia, Austria which is now in the Western Ukraine. They immigrated to Canada in the early 1900's. Steve and Mary had 12 children ... Ann, Elsie, Katherine, Peter, Andrew, Jane, Matt, Martha, John, Lena, Ollie and Rosemary. Mom received her education at Smokeside School near Homefield. Her favourite subjects were math and science, however, the demands of farm life prevented Mom from completing her senior education. Her devotion to farm life continued as a result of an innocent purchase of her pie at a Fall Social at Smokeside School. Mom was 17 at the time. The handsome young man, 11 years her senior, who purchased the pie was Fred Fedyk. This led to romance and on July 11, 1954, Dad and Mom were married in Ituna. They celebrated their special day at the Macuick family farm. Yellow roses, her favourite flower, decorated the marriage ceremonies. Their honeymoon was spent travelling to Ontario visiting Niagara Falls and spending 6 weeks working on a tobacco farm in Simcoe, Ontario before returning to the current farmstead on NW 7-26-8W2M. On October 25, 1956, Mom became a mother for the first time when she gave birth to Harvey Frederick Fedyk. Additional children blessed Mom's life and include Marian Christine (January 02, 1958), Loverne Bernice (October 10, 1959), Barry Wilfred (August 12, 1961), Daniel Alfred James (October 2, 1964) and finally Bradley Dwayne Fred (February 21, 1972). Life as a professional homemaker was difficult in the 1950's, 60's and 70's. There were no 'pampers', local convenient stores, or fast food restaurants. Mom worked side by side with Dad in all aspects of the mixed farming operation and was also a key factor to the success of Dad's trapping ventures. Mom helped prepare the furs for sale to the Hudson Bay fur agents. Mom was a devoted mother and was an extremely giving individual. The coffee pot was always on and Mom enjoyed impromptu visits by neighbours and friends, especially nephew Ken Smuk. She was noted for her cooking skills and had the ability to 'whip up a full' course meal and personally deliver the feast to those working in the field. No one went hungry. Mom's greatest joys were her children and especially her grandchildren. She LOVED her name ... Baba. She always provided hugs, practiced patience and wisdom, had the ability to see 'the big picture of life' and a genuine concern for others. She was the first to show kindness to those less fortunate. She enjoyed her children's graduation ceremonies, loved curling and was an avid cheerleader at hockey and baseball games in Jedburgh, Willowbrook, and Regina. She had fun playing cards with her grandchildren. She was especially proud to attend the Ukrainian Dance concerts were her 2 sons and 2 grandchildren participated. She was grateful to attend her granddaughter's wedding in 2002. She was extremely loyal to her Ukrainian Heritage and ensured the Ukrainian traditions were followed during Christmas and Easter. She loved the spring and the 'faith and hope' generated by the Easter season. Mom truly loved Dad. They would have been married 49 years this summer. She was Dad's anchor and source of comfort. During the past year, during Dad's stay at the Pioneer Lodge in Ituna, she was constantly travelling from the farm to visit Dad. This was very difficult for Mom. She missed Dad dearly. On April 10th, 2 days before she celebrated Dad's life, she was diagnosed with cancer. She was adamant that she be present at the funeral of the man she loved. She had to say farewell ... treatment was secondary. Further medical tests revealed her condition was untreatable. She was admitted to the Yorkton Regional Health facility on Wednesday April 23rd. She had numerous visitors' and received excellent care. God was very kind. During her sleep, He called her to be with her 'life long mate' at 3:00 am on Monday April 28th. Together, Mom and Dad are now in peace and admiring their true legacies ... their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Your hugs and love will embrace us forever. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Sacred Heart Church.
