William Thomas Fredrickson, 91, of Hartland, WI took his first Heavenly breath on November 17th, 2021 in the comfort of his home and presence of his beloved wife. Bill was born October 12th, 1930, in Hartford WI, the son of Harley Fredrickson and Helen (nee Schuster).
William was best known for the love and compassion of his family along with his deep faith. He found great enjoyment in baseball, always appreciated any kind of company, and never turned down a Pabst, where he worked dutifully from 1964-1995. He was a Korean War veteran who received two purple hearts during his service. The love for his country was undeniable and heavily felt through the stories he shared. William was baptized into his Catholic faith at the Basilica National Shrine of Mary at Holy Hill where he will have his Mass of Resurrection.
William (Bill) was survived by his devoted wife Judith (nee Veitel) Fredrickson, daughters Lynne (Bryan) Scharpf, Anne (Sam Johns) Fredrickson, granddaughters Lyndsey Herbst (Mitch), Annie (Kollin) Kozik Molly, Gracie, great granddaughter Ada June Kozik, and sisters Ruth Nestler and Mary Heinen.
Visitation is from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday, November 23rd at the Basilica National Shrine of Mary at Holy Hill, 1525 Carmel Rd Hubertus, WI. Mass of Resurrection will follow at 4pm. A private family burial will take place at St. Mary of the Hill Cemetery on Wednesday, November 24th.
