Fred Weschenfelder was a man born in Montana with a heart the size of the Big Sky. Many of his friends and friends with special needs can attest to that. The parties thrown down by the river for these children with special needs added to his depth.
On Feb. 22, 2017, Jesus, with his expertly tuned diesel, came and took Fred home.
Fred’s immediate family includes his son Fred, daughter Bonnie, and sister Joyce Krueger (Dennis). Grandchildren include Jessica Smith (Brent), Luke Weschenfelder, Billy McKenzie, Aaron McKenzie and one great grandchild Parker.
Fred was preceded in death by his parents Fred and Mary and his brother Robert.
Fred was the proprietor of Castle Rock Inn from 1967 to 2013. He loved the river, the people, and the big outdoors.
His somewhat grumpy but comedic fast wit loved by most will be missed for many years. We will not soon forget you.
The viewing will be Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 5-7p.m. The funeral will be Wednesday, March 1 at 10 a.m. Both will be held at Smiths Funeral Chapel in Laurel, Montana at 315 East 3rd Street.
Donations in memory of Fred can be made to Reach Inc. in Bozeman, which can be reached at (406) 587-1271.
