Obituary for Frederick Zwerk

Frederick Zwerk, 84, of Frankenmuth, died Monday, December 3, 2018 at the Tuscola County Medical Care Facility in Caro. He was born October 30, 1934 in Saginaw, son of the late Herbert and Hildegard (Reif) Zwerk. Mr. Zwerk was a graduate of Arthur Hill High School in Saginaw.

He was a member of the Christ Lutheran Church in Reese and in his earlier years was active in the Richville Lions Club. He was also a member of the NFO (National Farmer Organization) and taught hunter safety courses. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, but his best hobby was tinkering and fixing things.
