Mr. Donald Frederickson, 72, a resident of Moosic, passed away Monday evening, February 25, 2013, after a two-year courageous battle with multiple myeloma and lymphoma. His beloved, devoted and caring wife is Regina (Jean) Felter Frederickson. They would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on May 18, 2013.
Don was the son of the late Herbert and Dora Radle Frederickson. Don attended Moosic High School and was an Army
veteran. Don worked for Dupont De Nemours Powder Mill, later purchased by Goex Powder Mill, in Moosic for more than 30 years. He was last employed by Lackawanna County for more than 12 years until his illness.
He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved the outdoors. Don was a die-hard Eagles and Phillies fan. Don was a do-it-yourself guy, he could fix anything. He was very talented and well liked by his many friends and co-workers.
Don was a very caring and compassionate man.
He enjoyed taking his daughter wherever she wanted to go. He had the patience of a saint with her. She affectionately called him "Pa." He will be sorely missed by all of his family.
He was preceded in death by a sister, Lois Lisk; and two brothers, Alfred and Henry Frederickson.
He is also survived by his treasured daughter, Regina Ann (Jeanie), at home; and his son, Donald Jr., a prominent Moosic attorney and Lackawanna County solicitor; sister, Agnes Burge and her husband, James, of Florida; sister, Dorothy Woodward and her husband, Charles, of New York; brother, William (Bill) Frederickson of Moosic; brother, Richard Frederickson and his wife, Paulette, of Scranton.
The family would like to thank Don's brother, Bill, and brother-in-law, Joe Felter, for all their help during Don's illness. We couldn't have done it without these two devoted people.
