Frederick R. Temple

CONNEAUT — Frederick Rodgers Temple, age 72, died at his home on Tuesday, April 16, 2013.

The son of Herbert and Margaret (Williams) Temple, he was born in Ashtabula, Ohio, on Oct. 15, 1940. A graduate of Ashtabula High School, Class of 1958, he joined the United States Air Force in 1960. Fred retired from the United States Air Force in 1984 after serving his country with honor and distinction.

On Nov. 11, 1962, he married his wife, Karen Wrenholt, in Clearwater, Neb., and together they celebrated thirty-nine years of marriage until her death in 2002.

Fred was employed with Lockheed Martin for eighteen years as senior engineer, after his retirement from the United States Air Force.

A man who was blessed with scientific curiosity, Fred enjoyed computers, Astronomy and HAM Radios. An avid reader, he enjoyed books written by Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking among others. Fred enjoyed sharing his knowledge with others; he was the go—to person if you had a computer or astronomy question.

Fred will be remembered for his dedication and duty to his country, his inquisitive mind, his strength and courage through his illness and his incredible love for his family.

Fred is survived by his loving children: his son, Frederick J. (Sok Cheng) Temple of Des Moines, Iowa, and his daughter, Julie Ann Temple of Conneaut; three granddaughters, Emma of Des Moines and twin granddaughters,  Rebecca and Jessica of Conneaut; his sister, Donna (Roby) Rose of Ashtabula; and many loving nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Karen on May 5, 2002; two children in infancy, Scott Allen and Michelle Ann; his brothers, Robert, George and Herbert Temple Jr.; his sister, Barbara Rouse; and his parents.
