DOYLESTOWN - Our beloved Fredrick James Stanger went home to be with the Lord on November 13, 2021 at the age of 66 after a courageous battle with cancer. In his final days, Fred was surrounded by his loving family and friends.
Fred was born to Mary and Stanley Stanger on September 29, 1955 in Wadsworth, OH. As a child, he worked on the family farm, established an engineer-like curiosity of the world, and found a love of music that carried throughout his life. He was a 1974 graduate of Chippewa High School and later received an education in engine repair. Fred then started a long career as a truck driver with the Holland Oil Company and, most recently, with Yellow Roadway. Fred met his wife, Deborah Harris, in 1979 and married later that year on November 23. Fred and Deborah had two children, Christopher and Jeremy, and raised them in Doylestown, OH where Fred lived most of his life. Fred was a dedicated and loving husband and father. He was a family man who loved to coach his sons’ football, basketball, and baseball teams. He was also a world-class tinkerer who loved to garden, fish, and play guitar. Fred was a member of Doylestown United Methodist Church and a loyal servant to God who was always there to help his friends, family, and complete strangers in times of need.
Fred is preceded in death by his parents, Mary and Stanley, and his siblings, Lorraine, Larry, and Pam. He is survived by his loving and dedicated wife of 43 years, Deborah, his children, Christopher (Julia) and Jeremy (Monica), and his grandchildren, Addy, Emme, Vera, and Delilah.
A memorial service will be held at Doylestown United Methodist Church, 153 Church St., Doylestown, OH 44230 on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 at 5:30pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Homestead Hospice & Palliative Care at (330) 564-1444. Online obituary and guest registry are available at www.zakmonbarrenfh.com
1 Thessalonians 4:13
“And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.”
