Mr. Frederick “Fred” L. Wilk of Cedar Springs, Michigan, age 71, has “gone fishing.” He passed away on Friday, April 13, 2018, and simple cremation has taken place. Fred was the oldest of three boys. He graduated from Sparta High School in 1965. Fred was an avid hunter and fisherman, and he could tell a “tall tale” better than anyone— he would tell of the biggest fish that broke his line, or the buck that leaped over his arrow or bullet. Fred enjoyed farming corn and soybeans. He also enjoyed growing a garden where he could demonstrate his impressive green thumb. He roasted many pigs for graduations, wedding, and other regular gatherings and parties. He was quite the cook. Fred is survived by his children Jeannie Pritchard, Christopher, Matthew, and Patrick Wilk; three grandsons, four granddaughters, and one great-grandson; two brothers, Aaron and Ricky Wilk; and numerous nieces, nephews, and other beloved members of the family. He was preceded in death by his parents Lester “Roy” and Betty (Constantine) Wilk. A Memorial Gathering will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018, from 1:00 until 4:00 p.m. at the Rockford American Legion Merritt Lamb Post 102, 330 Rockford Park Drive NE, Rockford, MI 49341. Relatives and friends are encouraged to join Fred’s family during this time of fellowship, food, and beverage.
