Obituary of Fred J. Chrisman

EAST HERKIMER – Mr. Fred J. Chrisman, 55, a great dad, loving brother and a friend to many, of Main Road, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday afternoon, February 15, 2020, at Bassett Healthcare, in Cooperstown, New York. He was born on July 30, 1964, in Herkimer, New York, the son of the late Harold and Carrie (Humphreys) Chrisman, Sr. Fred received his education in Ilion schools. In the middle to late 1980’s, Fred honorably served our country with the United States Navy. He was currently employed with Walmart, Marcy, New York, as a tractor trailer driver. Fred loved his yard equipment and took especially more of a liking to his tractor! He was a lover of Ford mustangs and trucks and was very knowledgeable when it came to car talk. You would never see Fred just sitting around. He would seldom, if ever, take a day off, that would be unheard of. Fred would do anything for us. He had a heart of gold. He was always there for everyone and anyone, no matter who it was. He was always in great health and we have even reflected upon his athleticism when he would enjoy running. All in all, he was simply a great guy that is really going to be missed by all of us. He is survived by his beloved family, including two sons, Corey J. Chrisman, of Oxon Hill, Maryland, and Christian Dutch, of Kannapolis, North Carolina; his special friend, Maryann Rando, of Herkimer; his sibings, Harold Chrisman, Jr. and his wife, Lisa, of West Winfield, Connie Maxon and her husband, Max, of Florida, Beverly Stanley and her husband, Earl, of East Herkimer, Bethanne Moss, of Ilion, Robert Chrisman, of Ilion and Edward Chrisman, of Tampa, Florida; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins; and his very special friend, Wesley Mason, of Herkimer. Fred was predeceased by his sister June Kulp and brother Steven Chrisman.
