Fred Eugene Frisbee

April 16, 1937 ~ July 11, 2018 (age 81)

Fred Eugene Frisbee

Fred was born one of six children to George Frisbee, Sr. and Eula Frisbee. He lived the majority of his life in and around Deaver Park Circle in West Asheville, NC. Fred never married, but spent most of his life helping his parents in some way or other. Fred helped in the garden or in the house wherever he was needed. From mowing grass to helping care for his disabled sisters, Fred always had a giving attitude.

Fred was a friendly, outgoing guy who loved to laugh and cut up. Chances are, if you knew Fred, you have a few comical stories about him as well. Fred enjoyed tinkering with lawn mowers and became quite a whiz at repairing them for friends and neighbors. He was good at working with his hands and making things. In fact, he made a crayon holder for his disabled sister who wanted to color. Fred has many talents, but his greatest talent was that of a giving and caring heart. From humans to critters he showed compassion and love. As Fred might have said of himself, "I am just a simple man."

As years passed, Fred suffered the loss of his parents, and all but one of his siblings. He saw the neighborhood he lived in change and the house he lived in for so long demolished. Any of those events could break a person, but Fred managed to keep a positive attitude and a joke up his sleeve. Fred will be missed by many and although he may be gone from our sight he leaves us with great memories and a tough act to follow.

We will carry your smile in our hearts, Fred, until we see you again.

A celebration and remembrance of Fred Frisbee will be held on Saturday, August 18, 2018, at 3:00 PM at Sunrise Baptist Church, 419 Deaverview Road. Come share your memories of Fred and help us celebrate the life and memories he left with us. Everyone is encouraged to attend this informal celebration. Instead of flowers, make a donation to a charity in Fred's memory.
