Frederick W. Schmalz, 84, of Windsor Locks, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 14, 2020 at Bickford Health Care. Born in Rockville, CT on July 27, 1935, he was the son of the late William and Florence (Brown) Schmalz and grew up in Rockville. Fred and his wife were longtime members of Wesley United Methodist Church in the Warehouse Point section of East Windsor. Fred worked for SNET as a service technician and later Supervisor, retiring after many years of service. He was a volunteer firefighter for 10 years in Enfield Fire District 1, and later was elected commissioner and served for over 20 years before retiring. Fred was a longtime active member and past Master, Secretary, and Almoner of Composite Lodge 28 in Suffield. Besides being very active in Blue Lodge, Fred had a distinguished career in the Scottish Rite, Shrine and Eastern Star. He was created a Shriner at Sphinx Shrine on December 7th, 1973. He was a member of the Sphinx Chanters and the Sphinx False Alarmers. For many years he was in charge of the transportation unit responsible for arranging transportation for children and their families to and from the Springfield Shrine Hospital, a position he took great pride in. Fred was not just a joiner, someone who came to meetings to be counted, but someone you could count on. Fred, along with Martha Jane and their daughter, Cynthia Rose, were very active in Masonic and Eastern Star functions for over 50 years.
He was predeceased by his beloved wife Martha Schmalz in 2019 and his daughter, Cynthia Rose Pastula. He leaves his son-in-law, James Pastula of South Windsor; a grandson Brian Pastula and his wife Melodie of Canton, OH; and two great-granddaughters, Harper Rose Pastula and Halie Blind.

Dear Schmalz Family:
Fred was more than a Friend and Brother Mason.
During the flood of 1984, he installed straps to route all our phone lines to our answering service. Something that couldn't be accomplished today.
We will miss our out to restaurant missions with Fred
Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one.
Paul and Lois Lodola

I have been involved with Fred and his wife Martha for over 40 years and I loved him as a man and as a brother in Masonry. So many memories- Because of the virus we could not visit but he has been and will be in our prayers forever.
I never heard Fred talk against anyone as long as i knew him- Fred was a good man and now will be reunited with his wife Martha. God speed brother. You were loved by so many!
