Arthur E. Fredricksen
Arthur E. Fredricksen, 87, of North Haven, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, June 5, 2021. Born on July 9, 1933, he was the son of the late Arthur E. Fredricksen, Sr. and Edith Ongley Russell. He grew up in New Haven and was a 1952 graduate of Hillhouse High School. While in high school, he met the woman who would become his loving and dedicated wife of 66 years, Dorothy Lemke Fredricksen. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War.
He earned an engineering degree from the University of New Haven while working full-time supporting his family. During his 40-year career with the United Illuminating Company he progressed from a lineman to a Field Manager, to a Director and retired as a Project Manager in 1994.
He loved to tell stories of his UI days and to watch the Red Sox. He and Dorothy thoroughly enjoyed hosting family members and friends at their lake house in Stoddard, New Hampshire. There, he enjoyed fishing and spending time in one of his boats and playing board games. But he found the most joy spending quality time with his family and sharing his life experiences with his cherished grandchildren.
In addition to his wife, Dorothy, he will be greatly missed by his children, Lynn Fredricksen and her husband Louis Angelucci of North Haven, Alan Fredricksen and his wife Wendy Fredricksen of Wallingford, and Jason Fredricksen of Westville. He also leaves his grandchildren, Anthony Adinolfi of New Haven, Samantha Lynch and her husband Conor Lynch of Jacksonville, Florida, Amanda Fredricksen of Shelton, Tucker Fredricksen of Wallingford and Julie Fredricksen of Wallingford. He was predeceased by his brother Peter Fredricksen.
