Freddie V. Minor

NORTH KINGSVILLE — Freddie V. Minor, age 72, of North Kingsville, died Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at home after a courageous battle with cancer.

Fred was born May 9, 1941, in Knoxville, Tenn., the son of Fred and Alice (Brown) Minor. Fred came to live with his grandparents, Viola and Charles McClintock, when he was in the fifth grade.

Graduating from Conneaut High School in 1959, Fred was an avid basketball player who made All-County, All District, and All-Sectional teams in 1959. Fred served in the United States Marine Corp from 1959 to 1963. While in the Marine Corps, he served as a member of the Presidential Honor Guard in Washington, D.C. under the Kennedy Administration.

When he returned to Conneaut, Fred worked at the Reactive Metal Plant in Ashtabula, Weirton Steel in Weirton, W. Va., and Emco-Wheaton. He graduated from the Pittsburgh Institute of Technology in 1966. He later worked as a realtor for Bunny Thayer Realty, Gleason Realty, Lake Shore Reality, and Harbor Realty.

Fred was an avid golfer and was a member of many golf leagues over the years. He belonged to the American Legion Cowle Post 151. He especially loved spending time with his granddaughter, Rylie, who helped take care of her Papa after his diagnosis of cancer. On Oct. 31, 2005, Fred was given a second chance at life when he received a heart transplant.

Fred is survived by his wife, Rita (McCann), whom he married on June 19, 1965; a son, Fredrick (Renee) Minor of North Kingsville, and their children, Brittany, Brenden and Brady; a daughter, Michelle Minor of North Kingsville and her daughter, Rylie Minor-Tharp; several cousins in West Virginia; and a special friend, Minnie Blessing of Conneaut.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Alice Brown Minor; maternal grandparents, Viola and Charles McClintock; and several aunts and cousins.

Calling Hours will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., Friday, May 17th, at RAISIAN FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, 581 Harbor St., Conneaut.

Funeral Service will be held 11:30 a.m., Friday, May 17th, at the Funeral Home. Burial will follow at St. Joseph Cemetery, Route 20, Conneaut, where the American Legion Honor Squad will conduct Military Honors.
