Fred was born July 29, 1945, at Milaca Hospital to Mildred (Anderson) and Elmer Hass. He lived with his family on a farm, south of Bock, and went to country school, District 52. He was baptized in 1945 at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Bock, MN, and confirmed in 1959 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ogilvie, MN. In 1954 Fred’s parents purchased a farm in Southfork Township, south of Ogilvie. It was there that Fred grew up with his siblings, and attended Ogilvie High School, graduating in 1963.
Fred married Janet Dee on August 6, 1965 (8:15 p.m) at St Paul’s Lutheran Church by Pastor Kriesel. They were high school sweet-hearts and blessed to be married 52-years. Two sons were born to Fred and Janet, DuWayne on August 16, 1967 and Aaron on April 6, 1971. He loved watching his sons play sports.
In October 1970 Fred and Janet purchased a farm in Ann Lake Township, where they enjoyed raising dairy and beef cattle, sheep, chickens, rabbits, dogs and many cats.
During his working years, Fred also worked at Dalbo Feed Mill, Ogilvie Feed Mill, Boatel (making PT boats), Federal Cartridge (Arden Hills Arsenal facility), and Aurelius Manufacturing in Braham. Fred also served as an elder at St Paul Lutheran Church, and as a Treasurer for Ann Lake Township.
Fred enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, especially when they visited the farm, deer hunting with family and friends, and most recently turkey hunting. Fred and Janet enjoyed going to auctions and antiquing. He enjoyed having coffee with “the boys” in Ogilvie.
