Fred Krainick

Fred Daniel Krainick died March 11, 2024, at the age of 90.

Fred was born on August 12, 1933 to Charles and Maria Krainick. He was one of four boys born on the family dairy farm. He went through life with his twin brother and sidekick Frederick.

They graduated from Enumclaw Highschool, went to college together, and were in the Army during the Korean War, stationed together in Alaska

Fred retired as a truck driver from Reddaway Trucking in1995 and then went to work on the family dairy farm part-time

There were many sides to him. He loved dogs, sports, cigars, Miller Beer, betting on the ponies, polka music, and was a wonderful dancer. Oh, and lets not forget fishing. He also loved getting a good deal on anything.

His home was the hub of all family gatherings for close to 50 years, and he always made everyone welcomed. With his passing we are all like a ship without an anchor.

Hi was predeceased by his wife Muriel, his parents, and his brothers Charley and Val.

He is survived by his twin brother, Frederick, son Danny, special daughter Cathy, daughter Brenda, step-kids Glen Cash, Cheryl(Bruce) Rooks, Larry(Gail) Cash, Debra(Tommy) Woodward, Sally Wilson, along with many grandkids, nieces and nephews, and his beloved dog, Lucky.

Thanks so much to Lily and staff at Cascade Caregivers for the wonderful care they gave to him

Rest in peace, Fred We love and miss you
