NAUGATUCK — Fred Scheithe, born March 16, 1948, passed away on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020. Due to COVID, no services could be held for him at that time. We will finally be able to honor his memory at a Celebration of Life Service on Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021.

A graveside service will be held at 11:45 a.m. at Saint James Cemetery, Naugatuck, followed immediately by a reception under the tents at Jesse Camille’s Restaurant, 615 North Church St., Naugatuck, from 12 to 5 p.m.

Casual attire is welcomed. Because there may be a large number of people, everyone attending is asked to please bring a mask, as they may be required in accordance with social distancing guidelines.

Please come for the whole day or just stop in for a short visit, any time during the hours of 12 to 5 p.m. Sharing your memories of Fred will help honor him in a way he so deserves. The lives he touched are countless as are the memories he leaves behind with all of us.
