Fred W. Bargmann, age 86, died on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at Augusta Health and Rehabilitation in Augusta, WI.

Fred was born on April 3, 1933 to the late Henry and Emma (Heisse) Bargmann in St. Louis, Missouri where he grew up, graduated from school and lived most of his life. On October 17, 1959 he married Joan Panhorst at St. Matthew Lutheran Church. Fred was a very active member of St. Matthew throughout his life servicing as an Elder, Usher, and president of the Couples' Club.

He proudly served our country in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. For many years he worked with the U.S. Postal Service before retiring. Later, he worked as a doorman at The Dorchester apts. in St. Louis, MO. Fred also served as shop steward for the U.S. Postal Union. Fred was an avid Cardinal baseball fan, loved to travel across the country with his family, and was considered to be the best father in the world by his children.

He will be greatly missed by his family who survive him: his wife, Joan; children, Duane (Ginnie), Diane (Donny) Weber, Dale, Darlene (Brandt) Prickett; grandchildren, Jeremiah, Ashley, Sandra, Samantha, Jeremiah, Andrew, and Savaelyn; great grandchildren, Jude, Lyla and Prudence; sister, Jeanette; special cousins, Roland Hein and Ray O'Connell; many nieces, nephews, other family members and friends.

Fred was preceded in death by his brother, Henry; sisters, Elizabeth, Henrietta, Lucille, Charlotte, and Delores.

Honoring a life with a meaningful service is an important step in the grief process and is a gift to their family and friends —
a gift of memories and a gift of healing
