Married his sweetheart Edith Noyce on August 20, 1938. Marriage later solem-nized in the Salt Lake Temple. Served in the Infantry during World War II. Fred was a faithful member of the LDS church, serving in many capacities including ordinance worker in the Salt Lake Temple. He and Edith were blessed to serve in the Australia, Adelaide Mission in 1983-84. He loved to share his testimony with everyone and considered it an honor to bless the sacrament. Dad was a warm, caring person who had a smile and a hug for everyone. He loved people and accepted anyone as a friend. He was a devoted father and an especially devoted husband to Edith. They did everything together. He enjoyed fishing, watching TV, old movies, sports, and playing "the dice game". He loved music and was a member of the Olympus Male Chorus and the Sunday Anderson Dancers. Dads passing has left a void in our hearts but his unshakeable faith, strong constitution and legacy of perseverance and endurance will be with us until we are united with him again. We love and miss you dad. Fred is survived by his children Kenneth R.
