  Gerald Wayne Fredrick, 66, went home to be with our Lord on July 28, 2019 while at home in Oracle, Arizona.

  “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.

  Jerry is survived by his wife of 38 years, Nancy Fredrick; son, Matthew Fredrick (Rachina); daughters, Heather Cobb (Ken) and Nikki Worzella (Kevin); grandchildren, Stephanie, Chance, Autumn and Shelbylynne; great-grandson, Vincent; sisters, Judy Behm (Kenny), Marylou Henthorn, Kathey Henderson (Larry), Michelle Long and Rosemary Fredrick; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. 

  He was preceded in death by parents, William and Mary Fredrick, brothers, William and Thomas Fredrick, nieces, Robin Thorson and Katy Leist, and great nephew, David Thorson.

  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.

  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to: Oracle Arizona Cemetery, American Heart Association (Tucson Arizona), Banner UofA Cancer Research Center (Tucson) or the Southern Arizona Humane Society.
