Fredric E. Linder

Nov. 29, 1930-Oct. 19, 2016

Fredric Earl Linder, aged 85 of Homer died on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016, at Providence Seward Mountain Haven in Seward.

Fredric was born Saturday, Nov. 29, 1930, to Adolph and Eileen (Champion) Linder in Spokane, Wash., where he later graduated high school. After graduation, he joined the Marine Corps, earning the rank of sergeant before his honorable discharge in February of 1950.

He had lived in Kodiak, Alaska, for two years as a child, but in 1969 he and his family moved to Anchorage, Alaska, and in 1984 their family made Homer, Alaska, their home. Fredric provided for his family as a journeyman plumber until he retired from Orca Inc. Plumbing in Homer at the age of 60.

He was an avid outdoorsman and loved fishing, hunting and building boats and houses.

His family remembers, “He loved camping, fishing and hunting in the Pacific Northwest, and as a young family, we belonged to the Oregon Archeological Society and took part in the excavation of the Trojan site before the Trojan Nuclear Power Plant was built. We spent our weekends hunting and fishing; weekends were family time.”

Fredric is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Margaret “Peggy” Linder of Homer; son, Maynard Linder of Homer; daughter, Tanya Norvell of Homer; grandchildren, Gryffyn Linder of Homer, Arwyn Linder of Homer, Sung Linder of Homer and Preston Norvell of Seattle, Wash., and sister, Jackie Horn of Mt. Solon, Va.

At Fredric’s request there will be no public services, but memorials in his name may be given to the Wounded Warrior Foundation (4899 Belfort Road, Suite 300, Jacksonville, Fla., 32256)
