Frederick Unser Obituary
Unser, Frederick COLONIE Frederick Unser, 87, born October 7, 1925, entered into the eternal garden of paradise to be with our Lord, Jesus on May 30, 2013. A strong man of faith and leader in the prayer community, Fred served for more than 50 years at St. Clare's Church, Colonie. He truly enjoyed show tunes and delighted all through his gracefully choreographed dance. However, his greatest pleasure was working in his garden and creating lovely flower arrangements. Fred's artistic spirit was also displayed through his paintings. Fred was a hard and dedicated worker starting at 14 with the A&P Food Market in Albany; he retired at 79 from the 109th Airlift Group at Stratton Air Base, Scotia. A veteran, Fred served in the United States Army during World War II. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of nearly 59 years, Patricia Myers Unser; grandsons, Ira Penk and Tom Unser; great-granddaughter, Meadow Ray Penk; siblings, Del, Bill, Charlie, Herm and Mary Wolbert. He will be missed by his five children, Mark (Mary) Unser of Averill Park, Eric (Christine) Unser of Delanson, Veronica (Raymond) Penk of McAllen, Texas, Tim (Bonnie) Unser of Ballston Spa, Patrick Unser of Hyannis, Mass.; and his sisters, Margaret Seeberger and Grace Unser. Precious memories for Fred were those shared with his 10 remaining grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, who emulate his strength and heritage. Celebration of life services will be held on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 11 a.m. at New Comer Cannon Funeral Home, 343 New Karner Road, Colonie. Calling hours will be held on Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the funeral home. Interment will be in Our Lady Help of Christians Cemetery, Glenmont. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Unlimited Garden, Cornell Cooperative Ext., 50 W. High St., Ballston Spa, NY 12020.
