Brian C. Fredianelli

QUINCY HILL – Brian C. Fredianelli, 49, a resident of Quincy Hill passed away suddenly Tuesday December 3, 2013, at the Marquette General Hospital.

Brian was born on February 24, 1964, in Hancock, a son of Louis and Roberta (DeCesare) Fredianelli. He was a graduate of the Hancock High School with the class of 1982.

Following graduation Brian worked for Jim’s II Grocery in Houghton. He then was employed with Econo Foods, most recently as an assistant manager in the produce department.

On November 22, 1986, he was united in marriage to the former Sharon Anderson. The couple made their home on Quincy Hill where they raised three children.

Brian loved to read, expanding his knowledge of war and history to great lengths. He enjoyed music, spending countless hours in his man-cave jamming on his drums or listening to albums. He, his brother, and a few good friends held practice in the barn once a week. He also enjoyed spending time at Nakkula’s camp hunting, four-wheeling, and hanging out with his buddies and two sons. His sense of humor would keep his family and friends laughing for hours, especially when him and his brother Dave were together.
