Frederick “Fred” Arters
December 29, 1942 ‒ February 23, 2018
Frederick “Fred” Arters was called home by God on February 23, 2018. He was born December 29, 1942 in Detroit, Michigan, and born again March 10, 1980.
He proudly served in the U.S. Navy for nearly 8 years. He was an electronic gadget guy, and an electrician for most of his life. He loved music and played everything he could get his hands on, including the toilet paper holder, and he was the King of Simple Machines. He could diagnose a car by listening to its noises. He was proud of his kids, loved his wife, and was happy that his line didn’t die. He loved and provided for his family faithfully, and above all, he loved the Lord.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife of over 52 years, Barbara (Cassano); children, Brian (Melissa) Arters, Fred (Emily) Arters and Darlene (Geoff) Inscho; 11 grandchildren, John, Nicolas, Freddie Jo, Madison, Brian II “Gussie”, Luke, Noah, Lizzy, Lyla, Maci, and Nolan; 1 sister, Joyce Crishock; 2 brothers, James (Jackie) Falcone and Dick Arters; in-laws, Sam (Fran) Reinsel, Kathy (John) Cassano, Nanci Cassano, and Roni (Kenny) Weber; numerous nieces and nephews … and a brand new banjo.
The family will receive friends on Monday, February 26, 2018 from 5 – 8 pm at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive (formerly 1510 W. William Street), Delaware. Celebration of life service will be held on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 at 4:00 pm at Highpoint Nazarene Church, 795 Pollock Road, Delaware, with Pastor Mike Cheek officiating. Military honors will be provided by the Delaware County Veterans Association.
