Fred Etcher, a member of Canada's 1960 Olympic hockey team, died on November 25, 2011, in London, Ontario. He was 79.

Etcher helped that team win a silver medal, and he was also a member of the Whitby Dunlops team that won the 1957 and 1959 Allan Cup, emblematic of senior hockey supremacy in Canada.

He was injured in 1958 when the Dunlops won a gold medal for Canada at the IIHF World Championship, but in the 1960 Olympics he was the leading scorer in Squaw Valley, with nine goals and 21 points in seven games.
