Frederick David Schatz ’50

Frederick David Schatz ’50, March 7, 2015, in Jacksonville, Oregon. Fred graduated from high school in Klamath Falls, Oregon, and served two years with the U.S. Merchant Marine during World War II. He spent two years at Reed and served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. In 1955, he completed a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Oregon and became a certified public accountant. Fred and Donna L. Anderson married in 1957 and lived in the Willamette Valley and Rogue Valley. In 1967, they built a home in Jacksonville, where they raised their two children. The family enjoyed visits to the cabin Fred built on Crescent Lake in Oregon—they sailed, canoed, skied, and hiked. Fred volunteered on the Jacksonville planning commission and with the Boy Scouts. As a member of the Jacksonville Kiwanis, he helped design and build more than 100 wheelchair ramps throughout the Rogue Valley. He also built beautiful furniture. Survivors include his wife, son, daughter, granddaughter, brother, sister, and nephew.
