Obituary of Fred Marconi, Jr.
Please share a memory of Fred to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Fred A. Marconi, Jr., 71, of Erieville, New York passed away suddenly at home on June 5, 2022. Fred was born in Kane, Pennsylvania and was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Hazel; his sister-in-law, Susan Berg; father-in-law, Jack Muthig, and many other relatives and friends. There’s quite a party going on in Heaven as Fred loved to have a good time!
He loved to play golf; a passion passed down from his Dad and one he passed on to his sons. We will be reminiscing of the good times and laughter for many years to come.
Fred firmly believed in helping others, especially his neighbors around Tuscarora Lake, whether it was launching boats, mowing lawns, snow-blowing driveways or helping his friend Jim Nixdorf with the annual task of getting the well pump running in his camp, Fred was always ready and willing to help. He was an ambulance driver for CAVAC and was so proud to be able to serve them. His generosity and infectious laugh will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.
He was a brilliant engineer who had the amazing ability to solve any problem put before him as he loved to have a project to work on. He was the chief mechanical engineer and co-owner of MCM Design Inc., a product development company he managed with Chris and he holds several US patents.
Fred’s greatest accomplishment is his family. He was so proud of each of his sons. He loved the home and farm he built with Chris because he created most of it with his own talents, with lots of help from his Dad, sons and good friends. You will be missed Freddie Bear!
Fred is survived by his wife of 27 years, Chris; his three sons, Will (Christina), Frank and Jake; his two granddaughters, Sophia and Julia; siblings Ron, Cindy, Judi and Debbie; mother-in-law, Peg Muthig; brother-in-law, Mark Muthig (Paula) and many friends and relatives.
