Fred Maskerines, 87, of Pottsville, passed away on Friday at Schuylkill Center with his family by his side.

Born in Pottsville on March 7, 1934, he was a son of the late John and Mary (Sich) Maskerines.

Fred was a member of St. John the Baptist Church, Pottsville.

He worked for the City of Pottsville in the Street Department for over 25 years and in the Maintenance Department at Good Samaritan Hospital for over 20 years, retiring in 1999.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife, Magdalene P. (Wetzel) on March 1, 2021, and to whom he was married 60 years; brothers: John and Joseph; sisters: Mary, Betty, Veronica, and Anna.

As a devoted father, he will be deeply missed by his daughters and their families, who he treasured. He spent most of his days phoning them frequently, a time he so cherished. He enjoyed watching sports, especially the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles. He relished activities in the nursing home, especially bingo. He was an avid horse racing fan.
