Fred N. Souleles D.C.

Fred N. Souleles D.C. went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 18, 2009. He was born on August 30, 1917, and what an amazing man he was! Fred was born and raised in Los Angeles, Calif. He was a very active boy and young man and loved to swim in the ocean and ride on the back of his best friend's bicycle. He also earned his merit badge as an Eagle Scout. At the age of 15, he became a ham radio operator. Fred studied piano for 15 years and was an accomplished pianist. As the oldest of five children and the only boy, he was a good big brother who watched over his sisters. After high school graduation, Fred went on to the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, graduating and taking his state board exam orally with a score of 3rd highest in the State. Next, he started his very successful career as a chiropractor. In fact, he built-up and sold two practices, one in Calimesa, Calif. and the other in Weed, Calif. He started the practice in Weed when he was in his 60's. After selling that practice, he moved to Medford where he retired at age 72. What made Fred so amazing was that from a very young age he was blind. He never considered his blindness a handicap; his accomplishments prove that.

Left behind are his wife of 51 years, Martha Souleles, of Central Point, Ore.; his son, Nick Souleles, of San Diego Calif.; his stepchildren, Karen McDaniels of San Clemente, Calif., Jim Ronda, of Medford, Ore. and Michael Ronda, of Lake Elsinore, Calif. Also surviving are Fred's sisters, Marty Rutan, of Seattle, Wash., Fern Fetherolf, of Rosemead, Calif., Beverly Perdew, of Wasilla, Alaska, and Phyllis Danhausan, of Lake In the Hills, Ill. He had nine grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren who will miss their Grandpa Fred very much. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Nick and Florence Souleles.

Good bye my husband, dad, brother, Fred

and Grandpa Fred. He was blind, but now he sees.
