Oh how I am going to miss that loving pat on my shoulder that you did every Sunday. And that smile that was always there as I lead the music. You were always so kind to have some wonderful thing to say to me every week. Oh how I will miss opening our front door and having your darling family standing on our porch with some goodies and hugs, and letting us be Granny and Gramps to you all. I love your whole family so much. The world lost a positive and loving son of God, but Ron and I are so grateful we got to be a small part of your family!!
Nola Fenstermacher, January 9, 2019 Rest in Peace, big brother. You will always hold a place in my heart. God bless your wife and beautiful children. You did good, Freddy, you did good.

Fred Eichstaedt was a giant of a man and touched hundreds, perhaps thousands of hearts with his own good nature. The most prominent thing that one can say about this great man was that it was so obvious how deeply he loved his Heavenly Father, his Savior Jesus Christ and his deep love of his family. He was known and loved for his love of service to others, He will be greatly missed in California where he left behind many very good friends who will never forget him. Nancy and Tom Jonas, January 8, 2019 We are so sorry for your loss, Eichstaedts. We will be here to support and love you! All others - FYI, Jen had said rather than flowers, if you feel inclined to send something, Fred would've preferred gifts with which their family can make lasting memories (e.g. Movie Tickets, Urban Air, Six Flags, that kind of thing).
