Frederick H. Germann, age 79, passed away on Friday, December 29, 2017 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Toledo. Fred was born at the family home in Washington Township, son of Carl and Kathryn (Weirich) Germann. He was a 1956 graduate of Napoleon High School. He went on to receive a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from Ohio University in 1961. Fred served in the U.S. Army from 1961 until 1964, working as an artillery surveyor and attaining high honors for his skills. After his military service, he began a distinguished career as a Civil Engineer, working for the cities of Columbus, Ohio and Dearborn , Michigan, and then returning to Columbus to work for the Ohio Department of Transportation. He retired in 1993 after 32 years in his profession. Fred married Dolores Subject in September of 1971 and she preceded him in death in April of 2004.

He was proud to be a lifelong Lutheran. He will be remembered as a quiet, unassuming man; enjoying Weirich family get-togethers, reading, and watching the Cleveland Indians. He possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of baseball statistics.
Fred is survived by numerous cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents; and his wife of 33 years, Dolores Germann.
