    So sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. I graduated with him and would run into him at different funerals or catch up on his whereabouts with Paul Fredrikson when I went to him for dental work. It’s been a while since I saw Peter last, however, he was never forgotten. I was so sorry he was unable to attend our class reunion last August. Keeping his family in my prayers and praying memories of him will help you at this time. God’s blessings to all of you!

    I am so sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. He was a kind and giving person. Working side by side for over 12 years was an adventure. Each different and unique in their ways. He will be missed.

    Deepest sympathy to Peter’s family. Our families knew Fredrikson’s quite well. My parents were Russell and Donna (Olson) Bernstein. My Mom helped out with Peter and David when they were born and the twins were ring bearers at my mom and dad’s wedding in June of 1954. And when my mom passed away in October of 1997, it was Peter that held my hand and supported me as we walked in to view her before the visitation started.

  8. Keith Torgerson says:

    So sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. I graduated high school with him and we would visit occasionally when we ran into each other. Wish he would have been able to attend our class reunion this past summer. He will be missed.

  9. Patsy Wichmann Kuntz says:

    My Grandparents Willie and Freida Miller, were friend to the Fredrikson family living in Davenport. When we went to Davenport we would play with the boys and knew the family for many years. Peter was alway so kind and caring when he was in charge of our family funerals. He had such a good memory of the Miller family and would visit about the old days at Grandma’s house. The last time i saw Peter i could tell he was having some problems. Know that Peter is now at rest with his family and in God’s hands. My sincere condolences to the family.

    Peter was special for so many reasons. I personally loved his sense of humor, his kindness, his gentleness, his caring but most important to me was how he treated my mother, Doris Graff. He was always there for her and provided her with many smiles. I remember when my mother died Peter picked a song for her funeral, as he knew of her love for angels, and chose Angels among us. Peter was a blessing to our family as well as to so many others. Prayers to his family. May you find joy in your grief as you reflect on his memories.

    Peter lived as a neighbor to us at CHI Riverview for several years. Peter was a gentle soul and soft-spoken. He attended the weekly Interfaith Christian services and the weekly Lutheran Communion services as a prayerful and devout man. He enjoyed the history of both North Dakota and his family. And Peter is renowned for his hospitality among his neighbors and friends. May Christ Jesus welcome Peter into Resurrection Glory! Fr. Duane Pribula

    We were sorry to learn of Peter’s passing. He was always so kind, and my parents (Morris & Pearl Frosaker) spoke very highly of him. They used to take our children to see the llamas and it was a highlight of their visits to Grandma & Grandpa’s farm.

  25. Michael Nygaard says:

    Peter used to come into The Arc when I worked there. He heard I was looking for a place to build and showed me his lots in Davenport.
