FREDERICK F. RANDALL ( 1935 – 2012)
Adored husband of Sally Randall, loving and beloved father of Robert, Anne and MacNair, joyful Granddaddy of Anabel, happy younger brother of James Patterson, and revered uncle to a large Canadian contingent, Fred died peacefully on April 5, 2012 at Norwalk Hospital. He will be remembered by many for his love of life, his community spirit, and his colorful stories of life and work in India and the tropics. For the past 28 years Fred has lived in Harbor View in South Norwalk, where he met Sally and at various times served on the Harbor Beach Company Board and as Commodore of the HVYC. For 15 years, he and Sally have spent several months each winter on the island of Anguilla in the British West Indies, where he founded the Photography Club, actively supported the Youth Sailing School, quietly supported the Community Foundation, and officiated at, photographed and wrote about numerous regattas. Fred graduated from UNC, Chapel Hill, and the MBA program at NYU, and he served in the U.S. Army.
The family is deeply grateful to the Norwalk police and paramedics, and to the ICU and cardiology teams at Norwalk Hospital, for their considerate and thorough care. Memorial celebrations will be held later this year in both Harbor View and Anguilla, dates and times to be announced.
