Obituary of Frederick C Neebe

Frederick (Fred) C. Neebe, of Vestal, NY, went to be with his Lord and Savior on August 29, 2023 at his home in Johnson City, NY at the age of ninety-five. He is survived by his wife Evelyn (Sadosky), his partner in life for 64 years, and three children Janet (Ben Duff), Mark (Deb) and Jill (John Lukach), grandchildren Zari Anderson (Justin), Marlie and Peter Lukach, Lauren and Kathryn Neebe, and sister Alice Neebe. He was preceded in death by parents Julia and Frederick and brothers David and Joel. Fred was born in St. Louis, MO. He spent all of his education years in Columbia, MO. After his graduation from the University of Missouri in Electrical Engineering, he was transferred to the Northeast by the General Electric Company. Fred spent 41 years working in the design and evaluation of seven flight and engine control systems. This included "hands-on the aircraft" for four of the planes. Fred was very active in his Lutheran Church. A highlight of that activity was the leading of a Bible booth at the New York State Fair for 52 years. On average, 1500 New Testaments and 1500 Children's Scripture Activity Books were distributed each year. Boy Scouts of America had a high priority in his life. Fred held the positions of Scoutmaster, Campmaster, and leader of many improvements projects at Camp Tuscarora. Hiking, canoeing, and skiing were on his hobby list. He hiked the 46 Adirondack peaks (higher than 4,000 feet), the 35 Catskill peaks (higher than 3500 feet), and hiked the 100-mile Lake Placid to Northville Trail. Burial will be at convenience of the family. A memorial service will be held on September 30th at 1:00 pm at Grace Lutheran Church, 709 Main St, Vestal, NY 13850. In lieu of flowers, please direct donations to Grace Lutheran Church for the NY State Fair Bible distribution fund.
