On Wednesday, June 16, 2021, Fred O. Stickle passed away at the age of 89.

Fred was born on March 2, 1932 in West Orange, New Jersey. He received his degree in chemical engineering from Newark College of Engineering in 1954. On June 12, 1954, he married the love of his life, Doris Helen Kopp. After serving in the Air Force for 3 years, Fred worked in sales for 34 years. At the time of his retirement in 1992, he was regional manager for most of the United States and part of Canada.Growing up, Fred was involved in the Boy Scouts and earned the rank of Eagle Scout with four palms. He was a man of deep faith and was always actively involved in church. Fred served in Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Episcopalian churches as a deacon, board member, Sunday school teacher, treasurer, and charter member. For 26 years he was a verger at St. Mark’s in Geneva, which he considered to be an honor. Fred had a passion for sailing (land version of flying) and loved being on the water in his kayak. Keeping fit was important to him, and he enjoyed jogging and lifting weights. When he wasn’t on the water or exercising, Fred could be found reading about history or doing Sudoku puzzles. Fred was preceded in death by his wife, Doris. He is survived by his children, Susan (Jeff) Aichele, Carol (Richard) Anderson, and Larry Stickle, 8 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.A memorial service will be held at St. Mark’s in Geneva on Saturday, June 26 at 3 p.m.In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Mark’s Cornerstone Fund

"Moved on the lane 33 years ago and still remember Fred running with his German Sheppard. Later he was walking and would stop and chat for a minute or two. Wonderful man and happy I had the pleasure knowing him and being a neighbor. Our condolences to the family, my God Bless all of you."
