Obituary for Fred A Wires

Fred A. Wires, 83, died Saturday, July 14, 2018, at Mercy St. Charles Hospital.

Fred was born March 6, 1935 to Fred H. and Bessie Wires. He graduated from Tontogany High School in 1953. A few years after graduation he was drafted into the US Army. He married Jacqueline Klatt on May 2, 1959.

He was an electrician and boiler engineer at Libbey Owens Ford for 30 years.

Fred was a 60 year member of the Free and Accepted Masons of Ohio. He was a member of the Oddfellow Lodge and served as the Grand master of the State of Ohio. During his service he represented the state of Ohio by laying a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery. He was also a member of the Elks lodge where he served as Chaplain for many years.

Fred enjoyed boating, fishing and waterskiing. He had a weathervane on top of both his garage and a building at work so that he always knew when the wind was just right for the fish to bite. He was an avid snowmobiler traveling to Yellowstone and Iceland on several snowmob ling trips. He shared a love of tractor pulling with his brother. Together, they spent many hours in the garage working on their tractors.

Fred was gifted with a mechanical mind. He could fix just about anything. If he couldn't, he would call his brothers and the three of them would get the job done.

Fred was an avid storyteller and loved to tell stories to anyone who would listen.

Fred is survived by his wife Jacqueline, daughters Lee Anne (Reid) Stringer and Jacquelyn Sue Henderson, granddaughter Abigail, sister-in-laws Kate and Pat, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Fred is preceded in death by his parents, Fred H. and Bessie Wires, and brothers John and Ken Wires.
