Memorials made for Fred Stroming of Fall City, Snoqualmie Falls

Frederick (Fred) P. Stroming (Martin) died June 16 in Bellingham. He spent his last years in the Whatcom County area.

Fred was born Nov. 21, 1941, in Snoqualmie Falls,  to Leslie Frederick and Ellan Elizabeth Tromblay Stroming. He was raised in Fall City, attending Fall City Grade School and Mount Si High School, graduating in 1960.

Fred is survived by a sister Kay (Larry) Boyle of Snoqualmie, a half-brother, Leslie Harlow of Issaquah, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Fred was helped greatly by a good friend, Rick Powell, with whom he attended church.  His childhood years were at Mount Si Lutheran Church, and in later years he attended Immanuel Lutheran Church and Clearbrook Lutheran Church in the area where he resided.
