Fred Minter Will be Missed

Kathi Baldwin

FEB. 24, 2021

On Monday, March 1, Elizabeth's husband, Fred Minter passed away. Many new him fondly as “Santa Fred” because he brought Christmas cheer with him all year long. Elizabeth is a longtime member of Rotary, not only in the Placentia club but others clubs as well. Elizabeth was club president for 2003-2004. Fred was always by her side, supporting her efforts. And she was always by his side as Mrs. Claus. Our prayers are with Elizabeth at this sad time.
