To honour the pilots who served with gallantry and distinction during the Great War of 1914 – 1918.
Frederick Joseph Kee
April 5, 1921 – June 15, 2022
After graduating from Runnymede Collegiate in Toronto in 1940 at the age of 19, he enlisted in the RCAF. Fred served in Britain in the RCAF and RAF as well as in Combined Operations. Following the war he earned an engineering degree (The University of Toronto, B.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering) and had a distinguished career in industry.
Over the years Fred never lost his dream of flying and several years after he retired he earned his pilot’s licence at the Brampton Flying Club. He was a long time member of and contributor to many associations affiliated with flight and aircraft.
Fred Kee joined The Great War Flying Museum in December 1989 and participated in the activities of the Museum until his health prevented him from driving. Even then, he continued to support the GWFM by maintaining his membership and through very generous annual donations.
