Frederick Leroy Temple

May 18, 1945 ‒ March 31, 2019

Marion, Ohio

Frederick Leroy Temple, age 73 of Waldo, passed away Sunday, March 31, 2019 at Marion General Hospital.

Frederick was born May 18, 1945 in Marion, the son of Wayland Hubert and Mildred Luetta (Fischer) Temple. He was educated at River Valley High School and graduated in the class of 1963. Frederick loved sports and in 1963 helped to lead the varsity basketball team, for the first time in school history, to the Southwest Regional Tournament where they won 1st runner up.

Frederick was drafted into the United States Army and served his country during the Vietnam War. He was stationed in Germany and was an airframe repairman working on the “Huey” helicopters.

Shortly after he returned from the war, he was united in marriage to Anna Marie Sandusky on September 26, 1969.

Frederick went to work for Whirlpool in 1965. He was a dedicated welder for the company for 47 years and retired from there in 2012. He was a great provider for his family and delighted in being a loving husband, father, grandfather and recently great grandfather. He took pride in his home and enjoyed being outdoors tending to his yard and especially enjoying his cats. He could be a little stubborn at times but as long as he was in charge of the remote control, life was good.

He is survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, Anna Marie Temple; son, Aaron T. (fiancé Tina Combs) Temple; granddaughter, Kaylee T. (fiancé Christopher Bradley) Temple and great granddaughter Violet Bradley.

Frederick is preceded in death by his parents; son, Todd Temple and his brother Charles R. Temple.

Visitation will be Saturday, April 6, 2019 at Snyder Funeral Homes, DENZER Chapel, 360 East Center St. Marion from 11AM to 1PM; Memorial service will follow at 1PM beginning with military honors.

  • God of love and mercy,
    embrace all those
    whose hearts today
    overflow with grief,
    unanswered questions
    and such a sense of loss.
    Grant them space
    to express their tears.
    Hold them close
    through the coming days.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you Aaron Annie Kaylee and Family

    Love , Brisson family

  • I’m so sorry for your loss aaron hold on to those memories you have with your dad thinking of you during this difficult time

  • Annie and Aaron, the Waldo/River Valley class of 1963 has lost a GOOD friend and teammate. I’ve always cherished our days together from little league baseball through high school basketball, including the Vikings run to the regional tourney. As you know Fred was the “quiet man” and I will never forget what I called his “sly sense of humor” and the “smirk” on his face that gave it away. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and may the memories God has blessed you with carry you forever.
