July 29, 1968 - December 8, 2021
Sussex - Ian “Fred” Wilder, age 53 passed away on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at his residence. Fred was born on July 29, 1968 in Dover to the late Robert and Doris Ann (Jepson) Wilder and graduated from Dover High School. He lived in Mine Hill for 36 years before moving to Sussex. Fred was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Sussex. Beside his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, Andrew Joseph Wilder. Fred is survived by his baby sister, Elizabeth Henderson and her husband Guy of Franklin who cherished him very much. With a broken heart, Liz wrote a beautiful tribute to her brother and it is as follows, “My name is Liz (commonly know as Sissy), baby sister to a beautiful human being named Fred Wilder. If I were to think out loud, I would have to say I am truly one of the most fortunate human beings for having him as one of my older brothers. I would have to say what made Freddy’s and my relationship it was one of a kind, we were always honest with each other and we knew when one needed the other. Fred had a way of putting my crazy thoughts into perspective. I once joked with him saying, I think I’m going crazy. To which Fred responded: ‘don’t worry sissy when you go senile you won’t know it.’ Fred did not have much, but he would give you the shirt off his back if he did not have another to put on. Fred was a true gentle giant. Fred always cared so much more for others then he did himself. I have heard from so many people about how he would wave and smile from the porch as they passed by, he had a smile for everyone he met. Rest In Peace bro. Freddy I love you with all my heart. Love Sissy.” Private cremation services have been held at the convenience of the family and a celebration of life will be held in July for Fred.
