February 20, 1941 - April 10, 2021
Paul Fredrick Haderlie Jr. was born February 20, 1941 at the Star Valley Hospital in Afton, Wyoming to Sybil Harmon and Paul Fredrick Haderlie Sr. His younger years were spent on the family ranch until, when he was ten, the family relocated for a short time to Sugar House in the Salt Lake Valley. They later moved south to the Orem/Vineyard area where he spent his teenage and early adult years. He attended and graduated from Orem High School. During his time in Vineyard, he met RLou Morrill. They were married in 1960. After their wedding, he attended Brigham Young University and worked summers at various construction jobs to support his growing family. Fred and RLou’s sons, Todd Carl, Gregory Scott, and Kirk LaMont, were born during this time. A few months after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, Fred moved his growing family to Richland, Washington where he started a long career in the nuclear power industry. The family spent 14 years in Richland. During this time, he purchased a lot on Oak Street where he built the family a new home. Brett Fredrick was born, followed later by Sean David. The family took full advantage of the closeness of the Columbia River. Motorboating, waterskiing, and fishing (with extremely poor luck) were regular family activities. The families on Oak Street were a tight-knit group of friends and they spent many days and evenings on the Columbia River together. Fred was an avid water skier who artfully taught his sons how to ski right up onto the beach. The family put the long summer days to good use, creating many wonderful memories together at the river. It was not uncommon for Fred to come home from work and almost immediately load up his family for an evening of skiing on the Columbia River. A downturn in the nuclear power industry required the family to relocate to Vista, California where they remained for over 30 years. With three sons at home, Fred was heavily involved in the Boy Scouts of America program, in the which he became renowned for his skill with making a delicious Dutch oven breakfast. He attended many Scouting events and weeklong Scout camps. Fred’s passion for aviation pushed him to obtain his private pilot’s license and partial ownership of a small plane. He loved flying and enjoyed taking his grandchildren and anyone else for a ride in the sky. As his family grew, Fred’s grandchildren became the center of his life. He enjoyed spending time with them, cheering them on at sports games, cooking for them, and attending every special event in their lives. Love for his family sustained him through many medical challenges as he aged. His love for his grandchildren made their lives and his much sweeter. Fred is preceded in death by his son, Gregory Scott Haderlie. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, RLou Haderlie, and his sons: Todd Carl, Kirk LaMont, Brett Fredrick, and Sean David. He has 18 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren and 1 pending arrival. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, April 17, 2021 at the Berg Orem Chapel, 500 North State Street. Friends may call at the mortuary on Friday from 6-8:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:30-10:50 a.m. prior to services. Interment, Orem City Cemetery.
