Obituary of Fredrick A. Friedrich

Fredrick Arthur Friedrich went Home to be with the Lord at age 100.9 on January 2, 2023. Born
on March 22, 1922 to Nettie Marie Springer Friedrich and Frederick George Friedrich in
Youngstown, Ohio, he was raised in the Briar Hill neighborhood and graduated from Rayen High

Dr. Friedrich loved being a doctor! He was a gifted, dedicated and honorable family physician
in the Youngstown area, with a private practice in Boardman. He earned his pre-med degree
from Youngstown College and his medical degree from George Washington University Medical
School. He served his country in the U.S. Army as a medical officer, field physician, Chief
Medical Assistant Administrator, and Chief Medical Administrator. He served as the President of
the Youngstown Hospital Association and he promoted community medical awareness by creating
the Ask-The-Doctor booth at the Canfield Fair’s Medical Building, where he also assisted in the
display of a Canfield doctor’s office from the early 1900’s. He was on the Board of the Shepherd
of the Valley Assisted Living facility and was an active, contributing member of Christian
ministries at St. Mark Lutheran Church and Old North Church in Canfield.

Dr. Friedrich deeply loved his family and enjoyed hosting annual family excursions to Camp
Agawaten, Golden Lake, Ontario, Canada where his medical expertise included treating clam
shell cuts, fish hook removal, bites from giant mosquitos, poison ivy, and the dreaded Golden
Lake Itch. His enjoyment of fishing as part of the ‘Numb Bums’ and playing his guitar and
harmonica around campfires were legendary. At home on his farm, he enjoyed his Kubota
tractor and outdoor physical work after long days of hospital rounds and office hours.

He married the love of his life, Isabel "Becky" Ecker of Oakmont, PA in May of 1946. It was a marriage that thrived until her passing in 2007.

Fredrick leaves behind his daughter, Nancy (Jeffrey) Hartmann; sons, Carl (Bonnie nee
Jereb) Friedrich, and John (Sherry nee Ockuly) Friedrich; grandsons, Seth (Leah), Drew (Abby),
and Todd (Leah), Hartmann and Adam (Carrie) Friedrich; great-grandchildren Jovie, Ramie,
Nolan, Henry, Lucy, Janie, Cooper, and Chase Hartmann, and Jordan (Gina), Drew (Lisa), and

Special thanks to Victoria House Assisted Living in Austintown, Maplewood Assisted Living in

Family members are thankful and blessed every single day because of the work ethic he
imparted, his impeccable character, and his teaching of impactful life lessons. Dad Friedrich will
be missed and his memory cherished.
