Fred worked in con­struc­tion for most of his life and, in his later years, en­joyed work­ing at the Wy­oming Val­ley Coun­try Club. Fred was a fan­tas­tic bowler and golfer, a great cook, and en­joyed hunt­ing, fish­ing, the out­doors and his beloved dogs. Most of all, “Poppy Fred” en­joyed spend­ing time with his fam­ily.

He was pre­ceded in death by his brother, Thomas; brother-in-law, Bud Austin; and nephew, Ge­orge Kliamovich.

He will be greatly missed by his wife of more than 16 years, El­lie; and his step-chil­dren, David Ol­son and wife, Deb­bie; Deb­o­rah Kach­mar and hus­band, Craig; Lori Stil­larty and hus­band, Daniel; grand­chil­dren, Danielle, Adam, Maken­zie, Re­becca, Jil­lian and Mor­gan; sis­ter, Bev­erly Austin; and sev­eral nieces and neph­ews. A me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held at 11 a.m. on Mon­day at the Grace In­de­pen­dent Bap­tist Church, 1164 Blue Ridge Trail, Wap­wal­lopen, with pas­tor Brian Korner, officiating.

Pri­vate in­ter­ment will be held at the con­ve­nience of the fam­ily.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions can be made to the Amer­i­can Cancer So­ci­ety.

Ar­range­ments were en­trusted to Daniel J. Hughes Fu­neral and Cre­ma­tion Ser­vice, Wilkes-barre.
