Fred was born on October 10, 1956 in Jamestown, New York, and passed away on May 31, 2021. He was a resident of Chagrin Falls for the past 37 years, and prior to that, he lived in Jamestown until he went to college. Fred graduated from Jamestown High School, received his bachelor’s degree from Alfred University, his master’s from Penn State University, and his PhD from Case Western Reserve University. Fred proudly worked in ceramics at NASA Glenn Research Center, at General Electric for 20 years prior to that, and worked with the Cleveland Clinic. He worked on space shuttle tiles at NASA and lithium batteries to power jets with the Department of Defense. At the Cleveland Clinic he worked on a ceramic hip replacement project, working to find improvements with the current materials used in replacements. Fred was a family man, everything he did was with his family and for his family. In his spare time, he greatly enjoyed gardening, cooking, fishing, and remodeling. As a young boy, Fred would go hunting and fishing with his brothers and dad. Fred enjoyed watching local sporting events, especially the Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Browns. He also enjoyed listening to classic rock. Fred cherished spending time with his family and dogs, and adored his childhood dog, Humphrey. Any moment with his loved ones, was a special moment. Fred was a family man, fun-loving, reserved, a devoted father and husband. “There was nothing he didn’t think he couldn’t fix.” He spent time on work, with his family, and his weekend projects, and he loved collecting his Home Depot buckets. Fred will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
