Frederick Kiko 1943-2017
age 74, of Carlsbad, Calif., died Thursday, May 25, 2017, following an extended illness. He was born April 29, 1943, in Canton, to Russ and Coletta Kiko.
Fred is survived by his sons: Robert (Carlsbad) and Fred II (Los Angeles); daughter, Lisa Kiko (Canton); stepdaughter, Bridget Schettini (Maryland); seven granddaughters: Ebony, Erica, Maria, Jill, Janelle, Jevanina and Jaclyn; one grandson Robert Jr.; 11 great-grandchildren; three sisters, Wanda, Margy and Bertha; and seven brothers: Dan, Jim, Tom, Joe, Gene, Rusty and John. He is preceded in death by his parents, Russ and Coletta; daughter, Tamara; and brothers, Bill and Richard. Fred loved and supported his children and grandchildren. He had a generous heart, supporting worthy causes and helping people in need - often giving them jobs that led to lasting friendships. A brilliant scientist and electrical engineer, Fred was the founder of three companies: Tollgrade, Excelcius and Simply Automated. He attended the electronics show in Las Vegas every year to check on the latest inventions. He enjoyed old and new movies, which he passed onto his son Fred; tailgate parties at the Chargers games with his friends in his RV; and allowing the Charger cheerleaders to use his beach house for photo shoots. He loved having birthday parties, which Lisa made sure of when she visited.
A memorial service and Mass is planned at St. Gabriel Catholic Church in Minerva on July 18th at 11:00 a.m. Friends and family may call 30 minutes prior to church services. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Fred's name to Billy's Way at St. Gabriel's, 400 W. High St., Minerva, OH 44657 or to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, 1359 Broadway, Ste. 1509, New York, NY 10018.
