Kathy and family: My deepest sympathy. I am deeply saddened to read about Fred's passing. He was one of my favorite people to chat with at the Calhoun County Medical Society meetings. He had a kind and gentle demeanor. I also saw him as a knee patient. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Our sincere condolences to Dr. Fred Sawchuk's family. Fred was a dear friend and partner in practice. We spent many hours together in surgery and the clinic. There was never a moment I couldn't count on his knowledge, surgical skill, and great sense of humor over the years we worked together. Sandy and I are very saddened by his passing. He will be greatly missed.
Our prayers to his family.

I am so saddened to learn of Dr. Sawchuks passing. My condolences to his family. Dr. Sawchuk was one of the finest men and one of the best surgeons that I had the privilege of working with in surgery for 30 years. I knew that if I had a day of surgery working with Dr. Sawchuk, it was going to be a great day!
He was kind, compassionate, skilled, and very funny. He was wonderful to his patients, and I loved how he always spoke so warmly of his family!
Prayers to his family,
Linda Cumback
