Born in Kingsford, Mi., to Roy and Mae (Krans) Fredrickson, he graduated from Kingsford High School in 1967 and earned a Vocational Diploma from NWTC. Well rounded in different professions in his life, he was a Brown County Deputy Sheriff for several years, worked as a machinist and at the time of his death, he worked for the Town of Brazeau Sanitary District as the Assistant Plant Manager.

He enjoyed woodworking, watching western/war movies and was an avid animal lover, often naming the deer, bear, rabbits and other critters that visited his property.
Family was important to him, and he loved spending time with his grandchildren and great0-grandchildren, but especially time with the love of his life, Loreen "Reen" Hendricks and their dog, Sadie.

He is survived by his soul mate, Reen Hendricks; five grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; a daughter, Julie (Cris) Fezatte; two brothers; many nieces and nephews and Reen's children and grandchildren.
Among his parents, he was preceded in death by his step-mother, Jeannette Fredrickson and a daughter, Andrea Fredrickson.
