Fred passed away August 4, 2014 of natural causes in Sutter Amador Hospital. He was born on July 20, 1923 on Summit Street, in Jackson. His parents were Frank and Genevieve Maggi Cuneo. Fred graduated from Jackson High School in 1942. In 1943, he was drafted into the United States Army, was trained as a medic, and spent his last tour on the islands of Saipan and Tinian in the South Pacific. Fred married Norma Ball on June 8, 1947. They were married for 67 years. Sixty of those years were spent in their cozy little house on Peak Hill, in Jackson. Their only child, Jennifer, was born there. She was the “love of his life.” She had a son, Steven, who was also very special to him.

Fred enjoyed golf, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and sports, and was a charter member of Argonaut Breakfast Lions Club. Prior to that, he was also a member of the Jr. Chamber of Commerce, President of PTA, and very active with the Band Boosters Club. He loved Silver Lake, the family cabin, and the chapel, which he helped build and maintain for 40 years.

He is survived by his wife, Norma, daughter, Jennifer, and her husband, Dave Geraurd, and grandson, Steven Geraurd and his wife, Whitney. His parents and brother, Jack Cuneo, preceded him in death.
