Freddie Ray Steinman
March 15, 1926 –October 17, 2017
Freddie Steinman passed away peacefully October 17, 2017 at Brookdale Sunrise Creek. Freddie was a member of the Crossroads Victory Church and many members of the church became “extended family” for Fred and Rebecca.
Freddie retired from the United States Navy after twenty-one years of service. A proud moment for Fred was being able to take the Veterans Honor Flight to Washington D.C. In 1950 Freddie married the love of his life, Rebecca Robertson in Seattle, WA. After the service, Fred worked for Moore Business Forms, servicing equipment in the Pacific North West. After his retirement from Moore, Freddie and Rebecca moved to Montrose, CO. to be closer to family. In Montrose, Freddie worked as an estimator for Silver Leaf Home Improvement.
Freddie is survived by his daughter Joann Daniels of Oregon, step-children Ron Robertson (Merrilee), Mary Ellen Mullen (Robert) of Doylestown, PA., four grandchildren and two step-grandchildren. Also surviving are three great-grandchildren. Freddie was predeceased by his beautiful wife of 63 years Rebecca, grandson Dean Robertson and granddaughter Heather Mullen.
The family would like to thank Brookdale Sunrise Creek for their care of Freddie and especially to the Strople family for being so close and caring for Fred and Rebecca. Thank you to Ann Lee for caring for both Fred and Rebecca which allowed them to stay in their home during the sunset years.
Pastors Chris and Marvin of Crossroads Victory a special thanks to you and your congregation for being Fred and Rebecca’s source of spiritual comfort and support.
