(1936 – 2022) Fred S. Nadel of
Amherst, New York, peacefully passed
away September 16, 2022 at age 86,
joining his beloved wife Doris, who died
on March 21, 2022 at 96. Fred was
defined by Doris; Doris by Fred. They
were inseparable for over 50 years.
Their lives were marked by birthday
and anniversary parties with friends
and family. They were expert ballroom
dancers, gliding across the floor at the
Amherst dance club. They traveled the
world, hiked, sailed, and played tennis
together. Fred never stopped moving
and played ping pong every week
against all comers. Fred was born in
Hamburg, Germany, finding refuge from
Hitler’s Germany in the United States.
Fred grew up in Springfield, Illinois and
went to the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, graduating in 1958,
returning often for reunions. Fred also
attended Stanford Business School
and, after a career in industry, opened a
successful managing consulting firm in
Amherst, New York. Fred was a leader
in his community – serving Rotary
International (and earning national
recognition) and as President of a local
symphony. With Doris, Fred enjoyed
the symphony and opera, attending
performances at Chautauqua, Buffalo,
and in Toronto. When they moved to
Canterbury Woods in the early 2000s,
they became beloved and active
members of that community. Fred was
a devoted son to his late parents, Eric
and Irma Nadel, and brother to his late
brother Jeffrey Lee Nadel. A small burial
service will be held at Sunset Memorial
in St. Louis, Missouri on April 22, 2023
at 11:00 AM. Thoughts and prayers at
that time are welcome. Arrangements
by The Dietrich Funeral Home, Inc.
