Obituary for Robert E. Frederick

Robert E. "Bob" Frederick, 55, of Whitehall, died peacefully at home on Mary 22, 2015. Born in Allentown, he was the son of the late Donald G. Frederick (51) and Anne (Graver) Frederick (86). Bob received awards for his accomplishments and service from the AV and Theatre Departments of Whitehall High School before graduating in 1978. Bob matriculated to Lehigh Carbon Community College where he studied engineering and electronics. He was awarded an Associate Degree in Electronics Technology in 1980. Bob enjoyed an accomplished career in the oil and gas industry, working for giants, Air Products, Exxon, Dow Chemical and Agilent Technologies, among lesser known firms throughout the country. In 2005, Agilent, a 47,000 employee Hewlett Packard spinoff, recognized Bob's brilliant work in chromatography in awarding him the company's Life Science and Chemical Analysis Excellence Award. Bob's love and respect for family knew no bounds. He selflessly resigned from Agilent, moved into his childhood home and dedicated his life to caring for his beloved mother in her final years when she fell ill. Bob's grandniece, Madison(9), considered Bob her best friend and trusted confidant. Bob felt likewise about Madison, counting her colorful drawings and heartfelt notes among his most prized possessions. Bob will be remembered by his family for his inquisitive nature and gentle, and caring, kind and thoughtful spirit. He was an accomplished coin and rock collector, avid gardener, fearless aviator and dedicated cyclist at different times. He enjoyed bird-watching and nature photography. He travelled the world during his careet and considered Holland one of his favorite places to visit. Survivors: Brother, Donald H. Frederick (61), of Coplay; sisters, Jeanne (Frederick) Marquette (67) of Coplay, Janice (Frederick)Hogan (65) of Tennessee; sixteen nieces and nephews. Services: In keeping with Bob's wishes, services will be private. Contributions: In lieu of flowers, contributions to the American Cancer Society c/o Robert A. Hauke Funeral Home, 327 Chestnut St., Coplay PA 18037.
