March 9, 1943 - August 15, 2020
Jacob Frederic (Fred) Muth, Sr., of Taylor, passed away Saturday at home, just over three months from the death of his loving wife of 59 years. His wife was the former Julie Ann (Graziano) Muth.
Born in Old Forge on March 9, 1943, and son of the late Jacob Frederic Muth and Margaret (Chopyak) String, Fred attended Old Forge Schools before working for Roberts Sporting Goods and Chamberlain Manufacturing (General Dynamics) prior to retirement.
Fred loved to garden and work in his yard; take his annual vacation to Virginia Beach with his beloved Julie; and spend time with his adored grandsons.
A kind-hearted and selfless man, he always put others before himself and was certainly always there when needed.
He is survived by his son, James Muth and wife Tracy of Taylor, his grandsons, Jimmy and Joshua Muth; his sisters, Elizabeth “Dutchie” LaRose of Greenfield Twp. and Marie Christian of Old Forge; and nieces and nephews.
He was also preceded in death by a son, Jacob Frederic Muth on March 12, 2006; and his aunt, whom he considered a mother, Elizabeth “Pippy” Chopyak and her husband George.
Private arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with burial at Old Forge Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Paralyzed Veterans of America c/o PVA: Donation Center, P.O. Box 758589, Topeka, KS 66675.
