Obituary

Werner, Jr.
FRED MARTIN WERNER, JR.
December 11, 1927 December 20, 2018
Farewell to one of the Greatest Generation.
Fred Martin Werner Jr. was born on December 11, 1927 and was the oldest of five children.
Fred enlisted in the U.S. Army and initially served in General Patton's division in the European Theater of Operations. Like many of his generation, he rarely spoke of his experiences.
After the war, Fred returned home to Quincy, Illinois. He became a licensed electrician and started his own business. It was around that time he met the love of his life, Dorothy Bracy. He described Dorothy as "a real looker" until the day he died. Fred and Dorothy married on September 10, 1951 and together they raised 5 children.
Family health issues forced Fred to give up his successful business and move to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1963. He joined the IBEW Union Local 113. He worked more than 30 years in the construction business.
Ten years ago, Fred was diagnosed with cancer. In October, the family was advised Fred's cancer had returned and nothing more could be done. On December 20, 2018 surrounded by loved ones, Fred took his last breath.
Fred leaves behind his loving wife Dorothy, sons, daughters, many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Fred was deeply loved and was an amazing Grandpa. Memorial services will be held at the Pikes Peak National Cemetery on January 2, 2019 at noon.
The Werner family wishes to thank the caregivers, staff and volunteers at the Pikes Peak Hospice unit located on the sixth floor of Penrose St. Francis Hospital. We deeply appreciate your compassion, kindness and humanity. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation be made to Pikes Peak Hospice at pikespeakhospice.org.
