Obituary for Frederick F. Abair

Frederick F. "Fred" Abair, 92, of Lost Peninsula, Michigan died peacefully Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at Elizabeth Scott Assisted Living, with his loving family by his side. He was the husband, of 65 years, to the late Bernadine M. "Bernie" Abair who passed just five months ago. He was born on April 25, 1925 to the late Lucian and Beatrice (Tremmel) Abair.

Fred was a proud World War II veteran of the U.S. Navy, serving in the Pacific. He was a lifetime member of the American Legion and the VFW. Fred was also a Civil Engineer and retired from the Monroe County Road Commission when he was 62 years old. He was an active member of St. John's Catholic Church. Prayers were reverently said before and after each meal, up until the day he died. Fred's strong faith served as an example to all.

He enjoyed flying his planes, driving his motorcycles, fishing, sailing, camping, family vacations, Detroit Tiger baseball, and just putzing around in his backyard shop. All who knew him knew it was "Fred's way or no way!" and "measure twice, cut once." He loved to end the day by watching the sunset on his front porch.

Fred is survived his two daughters; Mary Pat (Hal) White of Erie, MI, and Beth (Bob) Sugg of Maumee, OH, two grandsons; Ryan (Christine) White of Athens, GA., and Justin (Kelly) White of Liverpool, NY, and three great grandchildren; Charles (4), Tessa (2) and Evelyn (8 months) of Liverpool, NY. Fred was the oldest of eight. He was preceded in death by three brothers; Ralph, Bill, and John "Jackie," and two sisters; Sister Angelita Abair and Eleanor Brainard and survived by sister; Joan Valentine of Michigan and brother; Larry Abair of California.

Fred especially loved family meals with all of the people mentioned above, and if it included a manhattan, his homemade fried perch, and mom's pie, all the better!
