Past Commander CSM Frederick W. Kaiser
Frederick W. Kaiser1926 - 2018 Obituary
Frederick W. Kaiser, 91, of West Chester, passed away surrounded by his loving family on February 15, 2018, of a worn out, much used, love filled heart. He was the beloved husband of the love of his life Christel F. Kaiser, with whom he shared 32 years of marriage. Although he was born in Philadelphia, PA, to the late Frederick Kaiser and Hilde (Freisinger) Bottjer, he was raised in Germany where he lived and served in WWII during the early part of his life. He later returned to the states where he proudly served and retired from the U.S Army after 35 years. He was part of the National Guard, 111th Infantry regiment of West Chester, and served a lot of his time in the service in Indiantown Gap. Considered a “Lifer” in the Guard, Frederick served as First Sergeant in the 111th for 18 Years. He was the first and only proud recipient to receive the Solider of the Year award twice; in 1969 and in 1981. Frederick is survived by his children: Ingrid (David) Benedict; Linda (Jeff) Meier; Arthur (Cristin) Trettin; Robert (Jackie) Trettin; Rick (Lisa) Kaiser; Heidi (Greg) Dowlin; 16 Grandchildren and 6 Great Grandchildren. Also survived by his brother Walter (Dot), and 3 sisters-in-law, Hannelore Greven, Rosemary Lohse and Anneliese Foecker & their families. To all that knew him, he was a very humble man who was highly respected, that didn’t take shit from anyone, which meant that “the honeymoon was over.” To his military family he was known to kick ass and take names while also being known as a loving husband, father, and grandfather by all. Relatives and friends are invited to his visitation from 6-8PM on Monday, February 19, 2018 at the DellaVecchia, Reilly, Smith & Boyd Funeral Home, Inc., 410 N. Church St., West Chester, PA 19380; 610-696-1181, www.DellaFH.com. His Graveside Service will be held at 2:30PM on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, 2 N. Railroad St., Annville, PA 17003 with full Military Honors. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in memory of CSM Frederick W. Kaiser, c/o Veteran Guard Third Regiment Infantry N.G.P., 2700 Southampton Rd., Philadelphia, PA 19154.
