Frederick John Ulrich of Lewisville, OH, born June 14th 1941, passed away the morning of Tuesday June 6th 2023 at his home with his wife of 56 years by his side.
He is survived by his wife, Hilda Reed Ulrich, whom he married November 12, 1966; three children: Mary Ulrich, Melinda Weisend (Darrell) and Michael Ulrich (Marcia); six grandchildren: Laken Warner (Dean Stuart), Cammi Warner (Thomas Kerr), Cole Ulrich, Delaney Weisend, Devan Weisend, and Alyssa Phillips. He was a “good ol’ buddy” to many, and a brother to four: Carol Brown and Theresa Farnsworth (Clayton) of Lewisville, Mary Brown of Wichita, KS, and Joe Ulrich (Joyce) of Port Washington, WI.
Fred was preceded in death by his parents Alexander and Mary Ulrich, née Dick, a special Uncle John A. Ulrich and also Tracy Heskett and Troy Brown.
Fred was a husband who adored his wife, a caring uncle, a great grandfather to three (Callum and Lauren Kerr, and Henrik Stuart), the hardest worker, and a man of God. He will forever be missed at church hall bingo, square dances, his garage where he tinkered on tractors, and by his wife & dog, Sadie’s, side.
Fred worked with heavy machinery as a Teamster. He was also a long-time employee of Gary A. Rubel and Baker & Sons Equipment Company. He will always be remembered as the first to arrive and the last to leave. Fred most enjoyed his time as an apprentice auctioneer. Fred was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and St. Sylvester Catholic Church.
Friends may be received at Watters Funeral Home in Woodsfield for Sunday June 11th from 2-6pm. A viewing will be held Monday June 12th and Tuesday June 13th at St. Sylvester Catholic Church in Woodsfield from 4-7pm. Fred will be laid to rest on his 82nd birthday, Wednesday June 14th, with Mass at St. Sylvester Catholic Church at 11am and burial at St. Joseph Chapel Hill Cemetery to follow.
