Frederick A. Schreiber, 54, died Sunday, March 13, 2016, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
Fred was born Nov. 23, 1961, to Mary Ellen (Boehm) and the late Edward Schreiber Jr. He married Karen Eckardt on Sept. 29, 2007.
Fred took great pride in being the third generation farmer on his family farm. He began working at an early age and made the farm his life. Fred had an amazing love for polka music and playing concertina. He had played in many polka bands; Polish Edition, Polka Nitro, Paper City Sounds and Four on the Floor, where he was the concertina player. He would also join Cynor Clasics, Benaszeski Brothers and Chad Przybylski on stage. Some of his best memories were made being able to jam with his mother on her button boxes and accordion. Another hobby he enjoyed was antique tractor pulling, especially using his grandfather's 1958 Fordson Major.
In addition to his love of farming and music, was the great love he had for his children. They have blessed his life in so many ways and he enjoyed all the times they shared together. He was especially excited about the future arrival of his first grandchild.
Survivors, besides his wife, Karen, and mother, Mary Ellen (Alvin Funk), include his maternal grandmother, Mary Boehm; a son, Michael Schreiber; a daughter, Cassandra (Shamus) Doran; three stepchildren; two step grandchildren; a sister, Kathy (Mark) Lewitzke and nieces, Kaylee and Molly Lewitzke; when he married Karen, he gained seven brother in-laws and three sister in-laws. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Leon Boehm and paternal grandparents, Edward Sr and Lillian Schreiber.
Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday, March 18, 2016, at Beste Funeral Home, Mosinee. Private family burial will take place, Town of Morris cemetery, Shawano County.
