Frederick HAYDT

Frederick Walter “Fred” Haydt, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away peacefully on August 16, 2023, at the age of 85. This sad event took place at the Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home in Simcoe, where Fred had been residing. He was a resident of LaSalette.

Fred Haydt was deeply cherished by his wife Jeannette (Rohrer) Haydt, whom he married on February 25, 1956. He was also a loving father to Dennis (Wanda) of Port Rowan, Deborah (Doug Schramm) of Baden, and Deanna Carl (Lui) of Tillsonburg. His presence will be greatly missed by his grandchildren Geoff and Kathleen, Brandon and Nicole, Cody, Amber and Pascal, Dylan and Amber, as well as his great-grandchildren E’owyn and Evelyn. Fred is survived by his sisters-in-law Ruth Haydt of Delhi and Patricia Long of Tillsonburg, and his brother-in-law Marvin Rohrer of Simcoe.

Fred Haydt’s journey was preceded in death by his parents, Victor and Violet (Loucks) Haydt, as well as his brothers Victor, Gerald, Donald, and Charles.

Throughout his life, Fred dedicated himself to hard work. He spent 17 years as a tobacco farmer in Walsingham and, following that, worked as a janitor at Delhi High School for 12 years. During his retirement, Fred pursued his love and passion for hunting and guns, leading him to open and operate Fred’s Gun Repair in Delhi from 2000 until 2021. This endeavor allowed him to indulge in conversations and connections with the many loyal customers he served. A man of great generosity, Fred cherished his family and found solace in the beauty of nature and the simple pleasures of life.

Those who wish to pay their respects can attend the memorial visitation at the Jeffrey W. Glendinning Funeral Home on 36 Front St. in Port Rowan on Monday from 6-8 p.m. A public graveside service will be held at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Walsingham on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to the Diabetic Association or a charity of one’s choice. Personal condolences can be shared at http://www.gffh.ca.
