Frederick W. Enfield Obituary
Frederick Wayne "Chips" Enfield, 91, of Greensburg, passed away the evening Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, after a battle with cancer, through which he never complained and always had hope. He is survived by his loving wife, Sharon, daughter, Suzanne, and son-in-law, Tracey. Born July 14, 1927, in Rockwood, Pa., to Harry W. and Charlotte Morrison Enfield, Fred grew up in Greensburg and attended Greensburg Salem High School and St. Vincent College. Fred was honorably discharged from the Navy and the Army, in which he proudly served as a staff sergeant at Yokohama Engineer Depot, located in Sagami, Japan, during the Korean War (as a veteran of two wars, his favorite song was "Anchors Aweigh"). Back in the states, he was employed at Bell of PA (Verizon), for 32 years. Always very active, Fred's favorite sport was tennis, which he played into his 81st year. He always had a project underway at the house, whether a DIY improvement, restoring old furniture, growing tomatoes or trying a new recipe. Fred enjoyed friendships that lasted well over half a century and had a special place in his heart for the dogs that shared a large part of his life: Toots, Gus I and II, Hannah and his very special pal, Rufus. Fred and his family are grateful for the kindness and exceptional care given to him by the nurses and staff from the Hospice Care Unit, especially Tamica, Pat and Amber.
Family and friends will be received from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at BARNHART FUNERAL HOME, 505 E. Pittsburgh St., Greensburg. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday in the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Excela Hospice. For online condolences, visit www.BarnhartFuneralHome.com.
