Obituary

Frederick John Frett, January 18, 1915 - June 11, 2020, 105 years old. Formerly a 96-year resident of the Cramer Hill section of Camden, and a member of the Evangelical United Methodist Church in Clarksboro, Fred passed away peacefully on June 11, 2020. For the past nine years he was a resident of the Masonic Village in Burlington. He is survived by his nephews Robert (Terry), Ted (Judy), and Frederick (Lorraine).
Fred was a sports fanatic! He contracted polio as a child, which caused physical limitations in playing sports. However, Fred was well known in athletic circles from the 1930s through the 1950s for his coaching years in men’s semi-pro football and baseball leagues.
Nicknamed the “General,” he coached the Cramer Hill Wildcats men’s football team, playing home games at 36th and Harrison Avenue and 24th and Harrison Avenue in Cramer Hill. Most of his baseball coaching experience was with the Defiance and Ackerle’s Bakery teams. Photos of these teams, which may include relatives of some of you readers, may be found at www.dvrbs.com.
In 1991, in recognition of his coaching longevity, he was inducted into the South Jersey Baseball Hall of Fame by the Hot Stover’s. He was an avid Phillies and Eagles fan and very rarely missed a televised game. Even up to his last day (before the pandemic), he knew what each team had to do to be better and he knew who they had to release, trade, or hire. He never used his disability as an excuse and was always very independent. Even when his mobility became more severe, he very seldom asked for assistance in getting around or helping him do things. He was what our family would call the epitome of a “stubborn Dutchman.” God bless you, Uncle Fred, for all that you did for us. We will see you later. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Frederick’s name may be made to the Evangelical United Methodist Church, 14 W. Cohawkin Road, Clarksboro, NJ 08020.
