Fred was born October 1, 1894, probably at home at 98 Essex Street, Jersey City, New Jersey, a child of Adam Staerath and Mary Raenska. Oral family history says his name is Fred, not Frederick, and he preferred to be called "Dick." December 2, 1914, Fred enlisted for three years as a Private in the New Jersey National Guard, 4th Regiment, Company E; and was discharged June 28, 1916 after serving 18 months receiving a deferment to take care of his family. Fred married Nettie Cecelia Rose, November 24, 1915 in Jersey City, New Jersey by Rufus K. Boyd, pastor of Centenary Church, and they had three daughters: Dorothy, Roberta, and Evelyn.

Fred was employed as a laborer and checker at the American Sugar Company in Jersey City and was laid off in 1920. He later found work at the American Cyanimid Corporation, Linden, New Jersey for more than 30 years as a chief chemical operator from which he retired in October, 1959.
