Fred is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, friends, and everyone he touched through his service and musical gifts.
Fred was a loving husband, father, and grandfather who was baptized and confirmed in his faith at Salem Lutheran church. Fred attended SEMO for 2 years before attending Washington University. Fred served as a medic in the Army Reserves for 5 and a half years before going on to work as a brewer at Anheuser-Busch for 40 years. Outside of work and military service, Fred enjoyed golfing, bowling, and attending events at the Muny in the summer. He was an active and faithful member of Peace Lutheran Church where he sang in the choir and was a member of the Couples Club and Careciples group. While his children attended Green Park Lutheran, Fred would volunteer for school events and drive on field trips. He was also a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. Fred was known to always have a joke ready to tell and a song ready to sing.
Fred, who always seemed to have a smile on his face, was also known to have the patience of a saint. He was always ready to help a friend-- which he believed could be found in anyone. He will be greatly missed by many.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to Peace Lutheran Church or Treehouse Wildlife Center.
