Ferdinand A. "Fred" Amon Obituary
Dr. Ferdinand "Fred" August Amon, a wonderful loving father, passed away Saturday, March 8, 2014, and was able to join his beautiful bride of 60 years and eternal companion, six years after her death. Funeral: 2 p.m. Saturday at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 300 Ridgecrest Drive, Saginaw, with viewing from 1 to 1:40 p.m. prior to the service. Interment: Greenwood Memorial Park. Visitation: 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at Greenwood. Ferdinand was known to all his patients, friends and family as "Fred" or "Grandpa." He was born in Erie, Pa., on July 7, 1923, to Ferdinand W. Amon and Amelia Amon. He told many stories of a close-knit family with his father, mother and his older brother, Paul. Growing up in the Depression era taught him to rely on his family. He lived in Erie, Pa., until 1943 when he entered the army in San Antonio. After being in Texas with the Army he decided to stay and attend chiropractic college. Before graduating he met the love of his life, Reta Holley. He often told us he was walking with a friend and saw her and commented he was going to marry her before they ever met. Since his bride was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he investigated the church and finding its teachings to be true, he became a member. He began serving in many different positions traveling throughout Texas to help serve the members of the church. After graduating and moving to Fort Worth, he began his chiropractic practice at 2504 Azle Ave. on the North Side of Fort Worth, where he served patients for over 50 years. While serving in the church and the people of Fort Worth, he and his wife were able to raise five sons. They will always remember him as a man of unconditional love, who was there whenever needed to lend a helping hand, a word of advice, or just to show his support and love. Thank you, Dad, for always being where we needed you...by our sides. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother; his eternal companion, Reta Amon; daughters-in-law, Dianne Amon and Virginia Amon. Survivors: His loving family, sons, David and wife, Stephanie, Ronald, Richard and wife, Jan, Scott and wife, Deena, and Thomas and wife, Buffi; grandchildren, Ginney, Gareth, Amelia, Ruthanne, Elizabeth, Andrew, Rich, Katherine, Jeff, Zachary, Taylor, Jordan and Jakob; and 24 great-grandchildren.
