Bainbridge Island, WA — Fred and Janet were devoted to each other, and left this life as they had lived the last 57 years: together. Fred was from Salem, Mass., and Janet, from Long Beach, Calif. He was 80 and she was 77 when they passed away on Saturday, August 3, 2013.
In 1963 they moved to the Seattle area, following Fred's job, and settled on Mercer Island.
Fred and Janet retired in 1999 to Bainbridge Island in Washington state and treasured the freedom to be together every day, working on building and gardening projects. Their favorite times were spent with family.
They are survived by their children, Paula (Mark), Jeff and John; and grandkids, Megan, Ryan, Sean and Nora; and Fred's beloved sister, Judy, and family.
