Fredrick Brown

March 24, 1955 — July 28, 2022

Fredrick Austin Brown, 67, passed away on July 28, 2022. He was born in Pocatello, Idaho living there his entire life. He lived on Rio Vista Road until around age 6, then the family moved to Tyhee, and then to Pocatello. He attended Tyhee Elementary School, Lincoln School, and Highland High School.

Fred worked as a custodian at Pocatello High School for 20 years and was a certified Lock Smith. He never married.

Fred enjoyed making pumpkin pies and pumpkin rolls for Thanksgiving for his family and friends. Starting in October, once the pumpkins were ready, he would harvest them making the pies and rolls from scratch. He even made the whip cream himself. He loved working on cars doing mechanical and electrical repairs. Fred loved people and everyone loved him.
