Fred Neubauer Obituary, Death – On May 13, 2023, Fred passed away in an unexpected manner. Dedicated and cherished husband of Tamara, and doting father of Danielle, Michael, Noah, and Eddie. Fred Neubauer was the cherished brother of Mark (wife Diane), Jim (wife Elizabeth), and the third and youngest son of Edward and Helene Neubauer, who both predeceased him. Uncle to a large number of nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews who enjoys having fun with his family. Laura, his first wife, passed away before him. He was predeceased by her. Fred was a high school and university graduate.
He attended Shorewood High School and the University of California, Santa Barbara. Fred had a prosperous career in the food distribution and sales industry, which culminated in the creation of FDM Business Development following many years spent working at Milwaukee Biscuit Company. His trusted mentor, Jerry Dorf, was an integral part of his success throughout his professional life. Fred was pleased with both the culture he had helped to cultivate and the many people’s lives he had changed as a result of his leadership.
He was a very giving man with his time as well as his financial resources, and he was guided in his life by a daily practice of spirituality. He would get up extremely early every morning and sit on his deck to read the bible and pray. He looked forward to visiting Palm Springs and other parts of southern California with his family any chance he got. It was quite special for Fred to be able to take Tamara and all four of his children to various athletic events and concerts together.
He also enjoyed riding in the Ragbrai 500 mile bike race in Iowa with his two eldest children. Both Fred and Tamara were dedicated to making a positive impact in the world, and as part of that mission, they established a scholarship fund and gave to a number of charitable organizations. We shall miss his love, humor—including quotations from Seinfeld—and profound devotion to excellence in everything he did. He will be greatly missed. The loss of Fred came much too soon in our lives.
