Frederick "Fred" Leidemer
Frederick "Fred" Andrew Leidemer, 69, of Moncton, passed away Wednesday, September 12, 2018, at the George L. Dumont Hospital, in Moncton.
Born in Dover, New Jersey, to the late George and Elizabeth "Betty" Leidemer, he was the beloved husband of Karen Leidemer.
Fred has always had a passion for the natural environment and the animal world. He loved to share those passions during long conversations over tea. He was one of the leading voices of the local Moncton Treekeepers and was relentless in his defense of the urban forest in the Moncton area. He was also a bicycle enthusiast and enjoyed riding around on his vintage Raleigh 3-speed, which he affectionately named "Emily". He had an inquisitive mind and loved to learn.
In addition to his wife, Fred is survived by daughter Jennifer Raven, a granddaughter and twin grandsons, his special four-legged friend Zoey and feathery companion Maco as well as many friends and family.
Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home & Crematorium (372-4800).
There will be no service by request.
