John Fredrickson

John will be so greatly missed.

John Fredrickson was born to Sheila and Jeep Brockway in Seattle, Washington on April 3, 1968. He passed away peacefully at the young age of 56, after a long battle with cancer.

He was born and raised on Vashon Island and graduated from Vashon High School in 1986. Before he graduated, he found a love for carpentry and decided to pursue a career in construction. Over the years he developed his skills, becoming a master carpenter with an everything-is-possible mindset. He built houses all over Vashon and various other places. John’s witty and outgoing personality allowed him to make friends wherever he went, and he was known for his very infectious laugh.

In 1984, John traveled abroad and was fortunate enough to spend that summer in Norway. He thoroughly enjoyed his time there and brought back many memories with him. In 1989, John and his dad, Carl, had the wonderful opportunity to climb to the summit of Mt Rainier. John loved to be on the water fishing, water skiing and everything in between. He adored the outdoors and was an avid hunter. He had many adventures hiking and camping in the wilderness and felt at peace when gazing at the stars. In recent months, he helped many people who were battling addictions get off the streets and into a safe place to live. Everything John did he did well and always applied all his effort.

In 1992, John married islander Lindy Mosher. He fast became a wonderful stepfather to Brandon and Jaime Hylton. In 1994, the couple welcomed twin boys, Max and Sam. He was delighted to be a dad and fell in love with the role from the beginning.

He is survived by his father, Carl Fredrickson (Deb), his biological father, Jeep Brockway (Cheryl), sons Max Fredrickson, Sam Fredrickson, Brandon Hylton (Kim) and daughters Jaime Hylton (Joey), and Sasha Reed. He also leaves behind sisters Kristen Church (Jeff), Tami Brockway Joyce (Paco), Annette Fredrickson and Shannon Lorraine and one brother, Jeff Fredrickson.

John is predeceased by his mother, Sheila Fox, and stepdaughter, Katja Taylor. John will be so greatly missed.
