Fred Kesselman, 70 passed away November 10 from ALS. Born in New Jersey, he joined the Naval Air Reserve after college and was stationed in Millington for six months where he was trained as a mechanic and a flight engineer.

Shortly before being sent back home, he met the love of his life and future bride, Sally Walter. It did not take him long to realize that Memphis is where he wanted to be, and a little over a year later Fred and Sally married. They then shared forty six wonderful years together.

A licensed CPA, Fred began his business career with five years at a big eight accounting firm, and he taught accounting part time at the then Memphis State University. He joined Oak Hall as a partner, and worked there for the next twenty seven years.

After his retirement, Fred was involved in various business ventures as an entrepreneur and consultant.

During his forty two years in Memphis, he was active in civic and religious organizations. He was active in the local chapter of the Cancer Society, leading the inaugural Cancer Answer Week, and served on the board of the Volunteer Center of Memphis. Fred also served on the executive committees of the Memphis Jewish Home, the Jewish Community Center, and Beth Sholom synagogue. Most recently, he served as Interim Director of Temple Israel of Memphis.

Fred leaves his beloved wife Sally, two children, Sheri Grad (Moshe), Marc (Risa), five grandchildren (Jordan, Ileana, Avital, Ari and Adam) and two brothers, Dr. Stephen Kesselman and Michael Kesselman.

Services will be held at Temple Israel, 1376 E. Massey Rd, with interment to follow at Beth Sholom Memorial Gardens.
