Fred Walter Lahmann III

Fred Walter Lahmann III

Fred Walter Lahmann III, a beloved family man and devoted friend passed away on June 5, 2024, at the age of 70 in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Known for his love of McDonalds, particularly the double quarter pounder with no pickle, no onion, and a large, sweet tea.

Fred will be remembered by his mother, Helen, his siblings, Ronald (Karen), Shirley (George), Terry (Betty Ann), Rhonda and Sandy (Dave), his nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, as well as other extended family members and friends.

Fred was preceded in death by his father, Fred W. Lahmann II, his sister-in-law Karen Lahmann and his brother-in-law Craig Kitts.

Fred enjoyed the thrill of auctions and the joy of uncovering hidden gems. His passion for bowling was evident in his impressive achievements, from a remarkable 256 series in Reno to a perfect 300 score at Columbia Lanes in Hamilton. A proud Marine Corps veteran, Fred also cherished his role as a Boy Scout under his father’s guidance.

Growing up in Colerain, Fred attended the local schools and later ventured into various occupations, including casino security and long-haul truck driving. His hobby of roller skating at Tri-Skateland in Fairfield and his lifelong fascination with collecting Wizard of Oz memorabilia brought him much joy.

The Celebration of Dia de los Muertes (Day of the Dead) and the Christmas tradition of ‘hide the green pickle’ were cherished family moments for Fred and his loved ones.
