FREDERICK RICKERT JR. passed away at home from cancer. Fred was born Oct.4 1943 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the 7th child of Frederick and Helen Rickert. He was raised by his loving Mother. Growing up he had some struggles but was sent to Norris School for Boys where he credits them with putting him on the correct path for the rest of his life.

He proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam era. He spent 13 months in South Korea and had a few stories he liked to tell from that time.

Fred enjoyed people and wanted them to have a great day. For most of his career he worked in retail sales and loved to joke with the customers and fellow employees. He always appreciated other peoples efforts and contributions.

In marriage Fred was kind, considerate, loving and caring. We were best of friends. We loved to go places and in retirement we were very fortunate to travel. Many of our travels included seeing relatives. We always felt so blessed.

If he was not sure we should buy something or do something he would always say “let’s give it some more thought.”

Fred is survived by his loving wife Georgia, his sister Nancy Fisher, Brother in law Bruce Myers,Sister in laws Ronnie Russell, Rita Russell and #7 Jo Fancher. He leaves behind many nieces and nephews and great and great great ones whom he always enjoyed seeing or hearing about. He felt blessed in his life time.

If any donations are to be made they could go to the homeless veterans or to the Norris Foundation, W 247 S10395 Center Drive, Mukwonago,WI 53149

Aunt Georgia,I wish I would have kept more in touch with Uncle Fred.I will truly miss him. I'm glad we had a nice talk and shared memories.Growing up in Milwaukee I remember Uncle Fred coming over on Saturday and watching Jackie Gleason.(yes Fred was a Wis. Cheese head ). Him and my Dad would take a coupon from the Green sheet (comic section of the paper) and get ten Hamburgers for a dollar.I loved going by my Grandmothers house.Fred and his brother Bob,uncle Bobby still lived at home.We had a blast (laaaaugh ) Fred would put on sunglasses and use the table as a piano,and him and Bob would sing Ray Charles.When I was in JR. High Fred worked selling shoes at ThomMcanns.He would give me a discount,I went back to school with the best shoes After he served in the Army he decided to go to California.That's where he met Georgia,and the rest is History.I'm 65 now,but he will always be Uncle Freddie.I Love you Aunt Georgia,my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your Family. Oh by the way,Fred had his own song by Freddy and the Dreamers.....Do The Freddie

You will be missed Uncle Fred. Great memories, from years ago. I sure wish I would have been in touch more often than just Christmas cards. I am glad I was able to have a few really nice conversations with you recently. RIP My thoughts and prayers are with you Aunt Georgia and I hope to be able to come visit you in the future. Love, Laura Hughes
