To send flowers in memory of Fred Moelling White Jr., please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Fred took Christ’s hand on the afternoon of March 9, 2019 while surrounded by his family. He fought great battles through life’s journey. It was when he met his beautiful wife, Louise, of 36 years that his life took on a journey he held steadfast to. He found “home”, a place he belonged, a place he’d be cherished for the rest of his days. Helping to raise a daughter, Deedy, followed by a granddaughter, Jessica, who completely stole his heart the moment she was born and last but not least, a great grandson, Mason, who was his best buddy of all times. He had a wonderful bond and friendship with his grandson in-law, Reggie. He may have been a rough around the edges, tough old pipe-liner in his day but to his family, he was lovingly called “PawPaw”. He was an amazing home cook and baker. He liked nothing better than cooking a big meal and sitting around the table with those he loved.
PawPaw Fred was a good listener, an awesome storyteller, and most importantly, a good husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was always there for his little family. He was often a source of sage advice. One thing is for sure, his love was a unique treasure that will never be forgotten. The time spent with him now turns into precious memories that will be conserved in the hearts of all who loved him.
