Fred Wise

Fred Wise, beloved husband of Diane, father of Morgan and Hayden, brother of Rolf, died suddenly at 63 on Feb. 19, 2012.

A 22-year resident of Issa-quah, Fred loved his life on Squak Mountain, surrounded by trees. He loved his family above all else, treasuring our home life, our trips to Alaska, as well as fishing the Karta with his buddies, cooking incredible meals and holding court at the table.

A professor at the University of Washington Department of Psychiatry (Harborview), he also maintained a private practice in neuropsychology with his associate and friend, Bob Fraser, for 25 years. As an expert witness, he was uniformly respected by all sides in a legal dispute.

He was preceded in death by his father Erling, and is survived by his mother Hilda, sister Marie and brother Allyn. Fred’s death is a terrible loss to us all.

A funeral service will be at 11 a.m. March 10 at St. Joseph’s Church in Issaquah.

With a passion for politics, he strongly supported policies that cared for those who are falling through the cracks.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Fred’s favorite charity, Union Gospel Mission, and vote for Obama!
