Frederick William Nowsch, 85, died on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at Fox Hill Center in Vernon. Freddie was a life-long resident of Vernon, Connecticut. Known for being able to 'spin quite the tale' truth be told, Freddie played the same lotto numbers his entire life and hit a six-figure jackpot twice in his lifetime. Following in his father's footsteps, Fred was a member of the Vernon Auxiliary Police for a spell and the National Guard. An avid dancer, Fred was tireless on the dance floor. Fred leaves a multitude of friends and acquaintances made during his frequent visits to Denny's, Friendly's, and his beloved "donut shop" – Dunkin Donuts where, for seventeen plus years, Fred would sit most mornings and enjoy the company of old friends. At one point Jess actually "put Fred to work" there. These days were among Fred's happiest. His family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at Fox Hill Center for their professional care, their kindness, going the extra mile, and their compassion. Fred leaves his sister, Dorothy Loomis Nowsch Sylvester in Bremerton, Washington along with a nephew Daryl William Sylvester of Silverdale, Washington, a niece Darlene Sylvester, and a very special great grandniece, Skylar Rose Sylvester both of Windsor Locks. Calling hours are Saturday, March 5, 2016 at Ladd-Turkington & Carmon Funeral Home, 551 Talcottville Road, Vernon, CT starting at noon with a short memorial service at 2 pm, followed by comingling at Fred's beloved Lafayette Dunkin Donuts. In lieu of flowers, kindly send you name and contribution to Fox Hill Center, 1253 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon 06066. Enjoy that great big dance floor in the sky where every day is a winning lotto day and all are friends who await you. For online condolences and guestbook please visit
