Fredrick C. McAlister, Sr.

August 24, 1935 ~ January 1, 2013

SALINAS - Fredrick C. McAlister, Sr., 77, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family in Salinas on New Year's Day.

Fred was born in Carmel to J.D. and Octavia McAlister on August 24, 1935. He was a life-long Monterey County resident. Fred was a descendant of a pioneer Monterey family. He enjoyed reminiscing with his lifelong friend, Horace Ferrante, about the early days of growing up in the 40s and 50s on Larkin St. in Monterey. Dad loved watching his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren carry on the family tradition of camping, fishing, and storytelling around the family barbecues or to anyone who would listen.

Fred joined the Marine Corps in 1954 and served his country proudly. He was a 15-year member of the Pacific Grove Volunteer Fire Department. He was active in the Pacific Grove-New Monterey Lions Club, the Salinas Elks Lodge 614 and the American Legion Post 31.

Fred is survived by Betty, his wife of 53 years; son, Fred, Jr. (Lesli) of Salinas; son, Bryan of Pacific Grove; daughter, Lisa (Jeff) Bentson of Clovis. Fred is also survived by four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Fred also leaves behind his beloved sister, Ellen (Anthony) Moltini of Monterey. Dad will be missed.

Private services have been held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the SPCA for Monterey County.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Healey Mortuary & Crematory. www.healeymortuary.com.
