Frederick L. Breckenridge

SOUTH WHITLEY – Frederick L. Breckenridge, 88, South Whitley, formerly of Lucerne, went to be with the Lord at 11:35 a.m. Friday, June 6, 2014, at his daughter’s residence in South Whitley.

Born Dec. 2, 1925, in Indianapolis, he was the son of the late Frederick Sr. and Amy (Lawrence) Breckenridge. He grew up in Knightstown and Mays, where he played basketball.

He was a WWII U.S. Army veteran from 1944 to 1946, where he saw action in Germany.

In 1947 he married Alyce M. Dew of Anderson and she preceded him in death in 1985. They had three children, Rene Hartman (Dave) of South Whitley, Michael Breckenridge of Rockmart, Ga. and Sandy Hatfield (Randy) of Warsaw. In 1986 he married Mary Ellen Bartlett and she preceded him in death in 2011. He is also survived by five stepchildren, Steve, Judy, Rob, Ann and John, and all of their families.

Fred was a retired teacher and coach. He started his career in Crothersville. He then taught shop and mechanical drawing at West Lafayette High School and coached B-Team Basketball for nearly 30 years. He truly loved sports and he enjoyed wintering in St. Petersburg, Fla., to watch his favorite team, the St. Louis Cardinals, in spring training.

Fred was a member of Zion United Methodist Church in Lucerne.

He will be lovingly missed by his nine grandchildren, Mike Rodgers (Missy), Cheryl Rodgers, Theresa Mueller, Rachell Cooper (Drew), Curtis Hatfield, Ralph Hatfield (Dana), Alyssa Hatfield, Quinn Hatfield (Carly) and Andrea Breckenridge. He is also survived by 14 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. Fred was blessed with so many wonderful friends and extended family.

He was also preceded in death by one brother, James Breckenridge.

Services will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Marocco-Rans Funeral Chapel with Pastor Tim Minnick officiating. Graveside services will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Tippecanoe Memory Gardens, West Lafayette.

Visitation will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Susan G. Komen Association and/or the Lucerne Zion United Methodist Church.
