Tremblay, Alfred (Fred) Loren Our Dad died surrounded by his sons and daughter after watching Michigan demolish Penn State. Fitting that he died after enjoying his two favorite things - Family and Sports. Fred Tremblay (March 23, 1929 - October 18, 2022) lived an amazing life and breathed his last breath in the early afternoon of October 18, 2022. He left behind his sons David Tremblay, Tommy Tremblay, Freddie Tremblay, and Michael Tremblay, and his daughter Patti Tremblay. Along with 15 grandchildren and even a few great-grandkids. He was preceded in death by Cynthia Stech who was his partner for over 25 years that he respected and loved dearly. My father was born in Newberry, Michigan and graduated high school in Algonac, Michigan. He was a boxer and played baseball at Western Michigan University. Then set out on a spectacular life. Many knew my father simply as "Coach." He was a man of extraordinary talents and loved all the teams he got toc coach. He always had a soft spot particularly for the Schoolcraft Teams he led from 1954-1960. He spoke of all those players and experiences fondly for 60+ years. He loved his teams like he loved his family - unconditionally. Dad was always a great storyteller and an almost mythical character to some. Larger than life -but to me he was just Dad. He was a coach, teacher, principal, bar owner, car dealer, professional gambler, pool hustler, arm wrestling champ, sports fanatic (but hated the NBA), member of the Michigan Coaches Hall of Fame, and always the coolest guy in the room. That's what a Dad should be. Every day Dad would tell me how lucky he was to have such amazing kids - all of whom have done well for themselves. He felt so grateful and blessed that ALL his kids turned out so incredible. There was no mistaking his booming voice and distinct laugh - he made you feel loved. Our Dad died a much loved and important man. He will forever be my best friend and most important person in my life. Our family is celebrating my Dad's life at the American Legion in Schoolcraft, Michigan on the 20th of November between 1 and 5 o'clock. Hoping to see some of his longtime friends, students, and players for one last bit of storytelling.
