Frederick William Pelon, 62, of Menominee, Mich. passed away peacefully late December 30, 2017 surrounded by his three daughters. Fred was born February 3, 1955 in Menominee, Mich. to the late Raymond and Lillian (Hansen) Pelon. During and after High School Fred was employed with Lloyd Flanders in the paint department. His attention to quality and details ultimately lead him to a lead position. Fred was very mechanically minded and loved working on cars in his free time. So, in 1985 he stopped working at Lloyd Flanders and established his own used car business; Classic Motors, which he was very proud of. Fred enjoyed collecting and restoring Aladdin lamps, old radios, and various antiques.

Fred was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, Jeanne Huffman, and an infant sister, Theresa Pelon.
Fred will forever be missed and cherished by his three daughters and grandson. They will always remember his loving teasing ways, both at himself and others, and will never forget his smirks, smiles and laughter.
