RIP Fred Soldwedel

posted May 16, 2012, 2:32 PM by Derek Hildebrandt
We’re writing to share with you the sad news that Fred W. Soldwedel,  a former president of both the Big Ten Club and the Tournament of Roses Association, passed away on Monday, May 14. Fred was the Club’s second Person of the Year in 1987 and was an active volunteer for many Pasadena organizations during his lifetime. His son, Fred D. Soldwedel, also served as Big Ten Club president from 2000-2001, perhaps the only father-son duo that can claim that distinction. 

Fred’s memorial service will be on Thursday, May 24 at 4:00 p.m. at San Marino Community Church, 1750 Virginia Road, San Marino, CA 91108. If you are interested in attending or have any questions, please contact Jim Jacobs at 626-334-5676 or wildcats76@verizon.net.

Please join us in offering our best wishes to the Soldwedel family during this difficult time.
