Fred Bretsky was born in McAdoo PA to George and Blanche (Fox) Bretsky on March 31, 1928, the oldest of five children.
As a boy scout, he was an air raid warden during WWII. In 1946, he graduated from Weatherly High School and enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he served for two years. After his honorable discharge from the Navy he planned to attend Rutgers University and major in journalism, however, he enjoyed his summer job at the Lehigh Valley Railroad so much that he continued working in various positions and locations for 42 years until his retirement in 1990.
In 1952 Fred married Marie Arsenault. They have been married for 67 years and have lived in Weatherly ever since. They raised two daughters, Patti and Annette. They also had two granddaughters, Jennifer and Betsy who are both deceased.
Fred enjoys hunting, fishing, and reading, especially John Grisham and Ken Follett. His garden has been his pride and joy especially tomatoes, cucumbers and green beans. For many years Fred has helped place flags on the graves of our local veterans. He is a member of the American Legion, the VFW, and the Silver Ridge Hunting Club as well as a lifelong parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes Church. He is a devoted husband and father!!
