We are saddened to announce the tragic death of the Rev. Canon Rob Fead (St. Jude's, Oakville) in a motorcycle accident last evening.
Canon Fead was the runner-up in the episcopal election in Niagara and is a good friend of bishop-elect Susan Bell. He was a chaplain in the military reserve, with the rank of Major, served on the Ordinariate Chapter and a close friend of Bishop Nigel Shaw. He received national media attention when he presided at the funeral of Corp. Cirillo, killed in the attack on the cenotaph and Parliament in Ottawa.
We ask that you uphold his wife, Veronica, in prayer as well as the people of St. Jude's, Bishop Michael Bird, bishop-elect Susan Bell, and Bishop Nigel Shaw.
