  “The Lord opened his arms to welcome Jerry home and said “Well Done My Son”

  He was born in Libertyville, Illinois, Feb. 1, 1953 to parents William G. Fredrick and Mary F. (Cox) Fredrick. The family moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1959 and made their home and new life here. 

  Jerry had a great career with SMAARCO Railroad  as an Engineer. He also was the best mechanic and Mr. Fixit! He taught his son and daughters all he knew so they could be self sufficient in this world. He was very dedicated to his wife and an excellent father to their children.

  A Celebration of Life will be held in Oracle, Arizona at the Oracle Community Center, on Sunday, Aug. 25, at 11 a.m. A luncheon will be served and stories, pictures and memories of how Jerry touched the lives around him will be shared.

  Interment will be private family graveside service at future date.
