Fred W. Pettid

We gather here today to mourn the loss and honor the life of Frederick William Pettid, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend, who passed away on August 24, 2023, in Mondamin, Iowa. Born on July 8, 1964, to Frederick and Billie Pettid, Fred led a remarkable life filled with love, compassion, and dedication.

Fred was a devoted husband to his wife, Andrea Pettid. The couple celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary, demonstrating the strength and commitment they shared. Their love served as an inspiration to all who knew them, and their bond was truly unbreakable.

Throughout their journey together, Fred and Andi were blessed with five children. Each child brought immeasurable joy into their lives along with love, laughter, and the occasional shenanigans. These five brought endless laughter, headache, and happiness into his life. Fred’s love, humor, and legacy will live on through each of them.

Fred loved his flowers, music, cars, cooking, but boy did he love Halloween time when he could set up his decorations that he would work on all year round.

Fred leaves behind his wife, Andrea, son’s Damien (Nathali), Jordan (Brie); daughter’s Steavie, Alexis, Jae (Brandon); Grandchildren Valentina, Micah, Braylee; his mother Billie; his brothers Mike (Cathy), Jim (Jess), Charlie (Melissa), his sisters Debbie (Pete), Nancy (Pat), Julie (John), Cathy (Paul). Also mourning him are many nieces and nephews.

Fred was preceded in death by his father Frederick and brother-in-law Pat.

Fred will forever be remembered as a caring and supportive father, always willing to offer guidance and make light of a situation. Fred, your laughter and pranks will forever be etched in our memories. May you rest in peace, knowing that you spread joy and laughter to everyone you encountered. We love you.

    I’m very saddened to hear this news. I met Fred when we were in 3rd grade. After his car injury, I brought some of his things to his house that he had in his desk at school. I remember there was a book called Blueberries for Sal and Fred had made a few drawings of the girl in the book. I’m convinced to this day, he had a crush on her! Fred and I became fast friends and we would hang out together a lot back then. So many great times with Fred and his brothers, sisters and parents at the Pettid household in Omaha.
