Fred was born on March 24, 1952 to Frank and Ed-na (nee Sch-mick) Riemer, Jr., in Milwau-kee.

He was raised in the Germantown area, and graduated in 1970 from Washington High School.

Fred furthered his education at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and the UW-Milwaukee, before he founded FJR Manufac-turing Inc. of West Bend, to manufacture custom automation equipment.

He was married to Deborah Deverse in 1972 and the couple began a family with his daughter, Melissa.

After marriage, the couple continued raising a family of their own.

His hobbies included astronomy, woodworking, building model trains and playing tennis.

He was an avid "Trekkie" and sci-fi buff, and above all, loved dedicating his time and energy to his family.
