Resident Spotlight
Fred Setter

This month we would like to introduce Residential Living Center resident, Fred Setter.

It was a beautiful day on October 22, 1934 when Frederick (Fred) John Setter was born in Iola, Kansas to Ed and Rose Setter. Fred was the second of six children (three sons and three daughters). Fred’s dad worked for the Sinclair Oil Company. The family moved to Greeley, Kansas when Fred was in the third grade and it was there where he graduated with the Class of 1952. 

Fred worked for the State Highway Department for nearly a year, then worked for Southwest Bell Phone Company for 38 years. During this time he became a father to five children. 

Fred married Donna in 1984 and they spent over 30 wonderful years together before she passed away.  He feels very close to his two bonus sons from being married to Donna. Fred and Donna valued family and enjoyed many trips to Florida to visit family members. After his retirement Fred spent many hours making lawn chairs for family.
