Frederick Richard Waidelich, 83, of Ionia, Michigan, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 22nd, 2018 at his residence in Naples, Florida.

Born to Lena and Joseph Waidelich, Fred lived most of his life in Pinckney, Michigan. He spent 47 years working for JCPenney. He met the love of this life, Joyce, and wed in 1967. In ’95, he and Joyce retired and shared time between Walloon Lake, MI and Naples, FL.

My deepest sympathy to the family. How well I know your pain. I rejoice in knowing that I Will See Him In The Morning Just beyond the eastern gate. This is an old hymn which I often sing to myself. Much love to all. Thank you my Der Lord for holding all of us in your arms.
