Obituary for Frederick Spinder

Contributor: ajkalb Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Funeral services for Frederick Spinder, who died early Sunday morning will be conducted at 8:00 p.m. at Leamington and grave side services will be conducted Friday at 2:00 p.m. at Midvale. Mr. Spinder was born in Switzerland in 1895 and came to the United States with his parents when he was a year old. The family settled in Logan. He married Elizabeth Wiley of Logan, Sept. 8, 1920. The couple lived in Midvale until 1939 and then moved to Leamington where they have since resided. He is survived by his widow, two sons and two daughters; John Spinder, with the Army air forces; James, Wanda Lee and Betty Spinder of Leamington. Also an adopted son, William Meaham in the U.S. Navy; the following half-brothers and sister, John, Joseph and William Bengi and Mrs. Louise Hansen, and his step-father Franz Bengli of Weston, Idaho. ### An addendum by daughter Betty who was 6 at the time of his passing and by now all my siblings have passed on. The time of the services could be right, I remember my father's casket was in our living room during the time of his passing. Also, my father died in the caboose of the train from a heart attack. It is my understanding that he was called back by Union Pacific as it was during the war and there was a shortage of help. That was why we moved to Leamington, Utah. He had worked for Union Pacific prior to this time during which time he had his heel cut off by a train and suffered infection a long while.

Life timeline of Fredrick Spinder

Fredrick Spinder was born on 25 Mar 1895
Fredrick Spinder was 9 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Fredrick Spinder was 22 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Fredrick Spinder was 25 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Fredrick Spinder was 44 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
Fredrick Spinder died on 20 Dec 1943 at the age of 48
