Martin Russell Fredrick was born on April 15, 1984 in Kangwando Province, South Korea.  He came to Minnesota on September 7, 1984 and was adopted by his parents, Bryan and Patricia (Sando) Fredrick of Ogilvie.  As a child, he adored his grandparents, Martin “Bud” and Esther Sando and spent much time with them.  He loved going out to watch his grandfather clean the barn.  He loved the kitties and the dogs on the farm.  He also loved his paternal grandparents, Russell and Isla Fredrick of White Bear Lake.

Growing up, he participated in Boy Scouts and 4-H.  During his 4-H career, his projects won him many state fair trips and he took a sheep to the Northwest Livestock Show.  In 1999 he received a purple ribbon for his computer project at the Minnesota State Fair, also the “Best of the Best” medal for his project.  He enjoyed karate, earning a black belt.

He attended Ogilvie Schools and graduated in 2002.  He played trombone in the band and was in the jazz band which received a superior rating at the state competition.  After high school he attended St. Scholastica College in Duluth and graduated in 2007 with a degree in accounting.

After graduation he worked at PouchTec in Foley, Phillips Distillery in Princeton,  Heggie’s Pizza in Milaca, FedEx in Maplewood and Hermanson-Lemke dental laboratory in Maplewood.

He had a strong Christian faith and was a member of the Ogilvie United Methodist church, where he was confirmed, mentored by Pastor Dennis Buckley.

In 2020 he was diagnosed with lung cancer.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic his diagnosis was delayed because of limited access to the health care system and that it was an unusual diagnosis for a relatively young non-smoker.  His treatment returned him to good health and he returned to work.  In February his symptoms returned.  He died on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis.  He was 37 years old.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Martin and Esther Sando and Russell Fredrick; uncle Ken Sando.

 Marty is survived by his parents, Bryan and Patricia Fredrick of Ogilvie; sister Emily Fredrick of Mora; grandmother Isla Fredrick of Milaca; uncle Glen (Catherine) Sando of Minneapolis; aunts, Gloria Sando of Coralville, IA and Lynn Hickman of Pinole, CA; cousins Sharon Schoenecker, Lynn (Andriy) Mykytyn and Kit (Cyrus) Lanthier; as well as many friends.
