We announce the passing of our husband and father Friedrich Gottlieb “Fred” Eisele. Fred entered peacefully into rest on July 6, 2019 at Third Crossing Manor, Gladstone at the age of 83 years.
Fred was born on December 11, 1935 in Stuttgart, Germany to Gottlieb & Katharine Eisele. He was the second of 2 children.
After Fred finished his primary schooling in 1951, he started an apprenticeship in motor vehicle mechanics and worked as a journeyman for several years.
In 1962, he made an apprenticeship in agriculture. Having grown up on a farm, Fred decided to be a farmer, like his dad.
After getting married to Maria in 1965, they operated a dairy and grain farm in Sindelfingen. During this time, their two sons were born to them, Martin and Bernhard.
To escape the urban sprawl, Fred decided to move the family to Canada in 1983. They settled on a farm southwest of Gladstone. There he lived and farmed until he suffered a stroke in 2014.
Fred enjoyed the country life, growing fruit trees, fishing and last but not least the church choir.
Fred was predeceased by his parents; one sister and brother in law. Left to cherish his memory is his wife Maria; two sons Martin and Bernhard as well as many relatives in Germany.
A heartfelt thank you to all those who walked this journey with us.
