Mark L. Fredericks

Mark L. Fredericks age 55, passed away at home with his family by his side after a brief, unexpected struggle with cancer on Sunday, September 23, 2012.

He was born on December 11, 1956 in Oshkosh to Herm and Lois (Peabody) Fredericks. He graduated from Denmark High School. Mark served in the U.S. Army. He was vice president of sales for Air Temperature Services, Madison for over 20 years. Mark was passionate about experiencing all life had to offer; he was always up for an adventure, practical joke or traveling to different destinations. Mark’s great sense of humor made him very successful in his sales career and people were drawn to his upbeat personality.

He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, 4-wheeling or just working in the yard. Mark was an enthusiastic Packer fan, liked going to concerts and listening to music with friends around the fire. He treasured the time spent with family and others he loved.

Survivors include his three daughters, Morgan Fredericks of Milwaukee, Madelyn Fredericks and Margo Fredericks, both of Minneapolis; the love of his life, Katie Coppersmith and her children, Maggie, Sean, Sam and Charlie, all of Appleton; his father, Herm of Denmark, WI; two sisters, Sue (Mike) Luebke of Denmark, WI and Peggy Seefeldt of Green Bay; one brother, Steve (Debbie) of Denmark, WI; other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his mother, Lois, and nephew, Shaun Luebke.
