Frederick Joseph Gaborit

Wenatchee, WA

Frederick Joseph Gaborit was born October 16, 1947, in East Grand Forks, MN. Around the age of four, he and his father and mother of seven brothers and three sisters moved to Washington State to farm. Upon the death of his parents, Fred was adopted by the Gaborit’s. His adopted father managed the Eagle’s Club in Wenatchee and owned Bert’s Tavern on Orondo Street in Wenatchee. Fred received his education from Wenatchee School District. During his school years, Fred enjoyed passing his time with a wide variety of athletics. He loved sports. He then joined the military in November of 1966, as a way to serve his country and complete his education. His first year in the military was served in Vietnam and the second year was served at Fort Hood, TX, where his education was completed in November of 1968 and he was given honorable discharge from the Army. Following his years of service, Fred moved to California for work, where he also met his first wife, Kathleen Trotter of Sioux City, IA. They were married in 1970, and had their first born, Jason Gaborit, in 1972. In 1975, they had a second child, Amber Gaborit. Fred later moved back to Wenatchee, WA, where he started work at KB Alloys and retired after 32 years. In 1980, Fred met his second wife, Phyllis Allred. They had their daughter, Suzanne, in October of 1982. Fred was happily married to Phyllis for 24 years, until her death in August of 2004. Fred lived out the rest of his days enjoying golfing and keeping in contact with his family. He was a big-hearted man, who loved everyone and everything about life. We know he is tee’d up and enjoying the sunshine while playing a round with his loved ones in Heaven.

Survivors include his children, Jason Gabarit of Schleswig, IA, Amber Gaborit of Sioux City, IA and Suzy Schaapman of Quincy, WA; six brothers, Dave Cariveau, Larry Cariveau, Tim Snitly, Jim Snitly, Dale Cariveau and Paul Cariveau; and three sisters, Carol Cariveau, Diana Cariveau and Barbara Cariveau.
