COLONIE – Frederic Slover, age 67, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, on March 3, 2020. Fred was born in Albany to Robert (late) and Patricia Slover. He worked for 35 years at Sysco Foods. Fred met his loving wife, Josie, in 1970. He asked if she wanted to go for a bike ride and the rest is history. They were married on November 25, 1972. Fred enjoyed spending time outdoors while hunting, cruising, and vacationing in New Smyrna Beach with his wife and family. Grandpa was always in the crowd at his grandchildren’s many sporting events, concerts, and awards ceremonies. Fred loved attending family celebrations. He always had a smile, kind word, and a good story and laugh to share. He made friends wherever he went. His presence will be missed by all.
Fred is the husband of Josephine Slover; father of Regina (Keith) Zobel and David (Destiny) Slover; grandfather of David “Punk”, Keithie “Bat”, Ryan “Smiley”, Gianna “Bah”, Milan “Sleep”, and Stella “Skeleton”. He will be missed by in-laws Frank, Rose, and Tony; his brother, Michael; and many family members and friends.
A special thank you to the doctors and nurses who cared for Fred at NYOH, St. Peter’s Hospital, and Albany Medical Center.
