Fredrick David Neudorf was born on October 25, 1978 in High Level, Alberta. He was the youngest of the children born to Bill and Anne Neudorf. He grew up in La Crete, Alberta and moved to Grande Prairie in 1998 at the age of 20 where he worked for the family business which is now G.P. Utilities.
Fred met his beloved wife, Angela Magrum (Neudorf) in 2001 while living in Grande Prairie. They were married in 2003 and through this union were born three wonderful children; Bradley, Blake and Brooklyn. Fred’s true pride and joy!
Fred very much enjoyed nature and the outdoor life; his favorite pastimes were fishing, camping, cooking, woodworking and traveling.
Fred was a very passionate, loving and kind person even as a young child. He had a big heart for the underdog and less fortunate and would go out of his way to defend and help in any way that he could.
He had a very competitive nature which made him push and challenge himself in many ways.
Fred’s love for his family was very evident. They spent many hours at their lake property enjoying family time, not only with his wife and children, but also with extended family and friends. He loved arranging annual father and son camping/fishing trips with his brothers and cousins and their sons.. he refused to take no for an answer, no matter what the weather, he insisted they all man up and join him in the fun.
In Fred’s short 40 years, he experienced many wonderful highs and very deep lows. He had some very tough and challenging struggles throughout his life. In April, 2011 he sought professional help and at that time, rededicated his life to Christ.
In September 2014, Fred suffered a major heart attack. This difficult trial also brought with it a tremendous blessing as Angela gave her life to Jesus at that time.
In 2015, when the Lord called Angela home, the hardships and pressures of life began to take their toll on Fred. His struggles became increasingly challenging and overwhelming. He again sought professional help in Kelowna, BC
On October 22, 2018, Fred suffered more heart related issues and was admitted to the hospital and he was released the following day. He shared that he felt so exhausted and was so very tired of battling his constant struggles. He pleaded with Jesus to be set free and praised him for it.
On October 25, on his 40th birthday, Fred suffered another major heart attack which took his life. God truly did answer Fred’s pleas for deliverance and mercifully granted him the freedom he so desperately longed for.
Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7
Therefore, if the Son makes you free; you shall be free indeed. John 8:36
