Stayton – Fred died
suddenly in his home in Stayton at the age of 70. Born in San
Jose, California, Fred spent most of his life there, and in
Sunnyvale, California, before moving to Stayton in 2000. Fred
served in the US Navy. He was also a retired furniture mover,
but never stopped organizing.
Fred loved being with
his family and friends, and even though he looked gruff on the
outside, everyone knew he had a soft heart. He was blessed with
a special love for children of all ages, and they all loved him.
Fred’s sense of humor, his desire to make people smile and
laugh, and his quirky bird call will be greatly missed.
Fred is survived by
his wife, Joyce; Children: David and Stacey; step-children: Don,
Janean, David , and Denise;
17- grandchildren ; 2 – great-grandchildren and his
beloved dogs Peanut and Jasmine.
