Frederick G. “Fred” Linnemann, 77, of Windham, NH, passed away on Saturday, October 10th, 2020, after a short illness, at Catholic Medical Center in Manchester, NH.
He was born on May 1, 1943 in the Bronx, NY to Marianne (Brunken) Linnemann and George H. Linnemann. Fred was raised in Springfield, MA and attended local schools. He went on to earn his bachelor’s degree at UMASS Amherst and worked towards his master’s degree at MIT. Fred spent his career working as a Systems Engineer for Sanders, which later became Lockheed-Martin (BAE).
Fred and his four daughters made their home in Windham when he bought the Nesmith Farm in 1969. He valued the Windham community– as a charter member of the Windham Lions Club, he was involved in the local club and Lion’s Camp Pride, in New Durham, NH. Fred was also a Trustee and helped restore the Searles School and Chapel.
Fred was devoted to his family and valued his friends; he was lovingly known as “Bampy” by his seven grandchildren. He loved the outdoors, whether he was camping, fishing, rowing, running, riding bikes, sailing, skiing, swimming, or boating. In his younger years, he was an avid hockey player. He traveled extensively, always enjoying trips with family and close friends.
