Born in Glace Bay in 1938, he was the son of the late John and Antonina (Drabek) Kosick. Dad served in the military for three years before training in auto body repair. He then worked as a miner for 26 years. Dad was a quiet and private man. He loved his time at the cabin in Loch Lomand.

Fred is survived by his loving wife of 49 years Nancy, his son Michael(Mabelann), daughter Shannon; grandchildren, Hannah (Ben)and Maya; Sister Olga (Andy Saytar); sisters-in-law, Lois Kosick and Rose Kosick.
