Raymond “Ray” Dale Frederick, age 83 of Albertville, passed away on July 7, 2024. He was born on October 12, 1940, in Donnelly Township, MN, to Laurence and Borghild (Laudal) Frederick.

Ray graduated high school in Stephen, MN and shortly after enlisted in the Air Force, where he served his country honorably for four years. In 1988, he married Cynthia Lee (Riggins) in Duluth, MN, marking the beginning of a long and loving partnership.

Ray spent over 25 years as a truck driver, a career that suited his outgoing nature. Known for his love of conversation, Ray had an incredible ability to make friends easily and leave a lasting impression on everyone he met. Affectionately called “Good Neighbor Ray,” he was always the first to offer a helping hand, earning a reputation for kindness, thoughtfulness, and support for those around him.

He was an active member of the Lions Club in Albertville, where he dedicated his time and efforts to community service. His free time was often spent deer hunting and fishing on Lake of the Woods in the summer and also ice fishing in the winter. He was an avid bowler and also like to travel.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Laurence and Borghild; and brothers, Verner and Donald Frederick.

Ray is survived by his wife, Cindy; children, Mark (Angie) Fredericks, Amy (Brian) Kottke, Thomas (Jolene) Marks, Andrea (Rich) Elliott, and DeAnne Troge; 14 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; sister, Ardyce Hart; and many nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.

Memorial service will be held Sunday, July 14, 2024 at 2:00 PM with visitation beginning one hour prior at The Peterson Chapel (300 Main Street N, St. Michael, MN).

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to The Peterson Chapel of St. Michael-Albertville. Online condolences for the family may be directed to www.thepetersonchapel.com.
