A 38-year resident of Malden and formerly of Somerville, entered into eternal life peacefully on Saturday, December 23, 2023 at Massachusetts General Hospital. He was 72 years of age.
Fred was born in Somerville on June 25, 1951, a son of the late Archie Truesdale and Catherine (Murnane) Truesdale.

Fred was a retired 35-year member of Teamsters Union Local #25 where he worked for U.S. Foods as a Receiver. In 2008, Fred started working for the City of Malden as a Parking Enforcement Officer. He was an avid Boston Bruins and Celtics fan, and enjoyed puttering around the house in his spare time. Fred, a member of the Chelsea Yacht Club, was very passionate about boating with a common saying of his being “if we can’t get there by boat, then we’re not going.” Fred’s true joy in life was his family, and he immensely enjoyed all of the special moments he was able to share with them.
