Frederick Joseph Lounds, Sr. passed away peacefully at Ball Hospice House on Friday December 27, 2019 at the age of 95.

Fred was born May 15, 1924 to William and Mabel (Murray) Lounds in Sault Ste. Marie, the youngest of 10 children. He grew up working on the family farm until his marriage to Norma Perault on January 29, 1943. They were married for 75 years, raising two sons.

Fred was a proud veteran of WWII, serving in the army in Germany and Belgium where he earned two Purple Hearts. Shortly after his return home, he began his career as a salesman for Gamble Robinson Co. from which he retired after 34 years. He was an avid fan of Detroit sports teams, especially the Tigers. He could build and repair almost anything, including the three homes he built for his family.

Fred is predeceased by his parents; siblings Elizabeth, Roylance, Earl, Treva Thompson, Frank, Enid Campbell, Hubert, Dorothy Clow and Willard; wife Norma and son Frederick Joseph Lounds, Jr.

He is survived by son Jim (Marina), daughter-in-law Sue Lounds; grandchildren Joel (Amy) Lounds, Travis Lounds, Patricia (Andrew) Wood and Karen (fiancé Brett Sandstrom) Lounds; three great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Special thanks to the nieces and nephews who called and visited over the past year. Your thoughtfulness and kindness will always be remembered.

A private family burial will take place in the spring. The family asks that memorials be directed to Hospice of the EUP, 308 W. 12th Ave., Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783.  Online condolences may be left at www.clarkbaileynewhouse.com.
