Siblings are Helen Leschied, Agnes Ferngren who predeceased Fred, plus Katie Loewen and brother-in-laws, Bill Leschied and Gary Ferngren plus Fred’s last aunt, Annie Kessenich.
Fred was known for his direct approach, his love of teaching the sciences in high school and love of teaching Bible lessons in Sunday School. He daily read the Bible and gained much information and light from it, consequently he impacted others. Fred spent hours each week volunteering and playing chess with his chess buddies. Woodwork was another fascination, which produced chess sets, small tables, foot stools and so on.
We are thankful for the faithful visitors, doctors and Nightingales who tenderly cared for and encouraged him in hospital and in Holmberg House. God bless you and keep you.
