Karl Henrik Frederiksen

January 8, 1930 — April 9, 2024

Casper, Wyoming

Karl Henrik Frederiksen was born January 8, 1930 to Johan and Martha (Pedersen) Frederiksen in Horton, Wyoming. Karl joined his loving wife of 71 years in Heaven on April 9, 2024 with his family by his side. Karl’s education was cut short after the 8th grade because he was needed at home to help provide for his family and run the farm.

On June 1, 1952, Karl married the most beautiful girl in Crooke County, Iris (Joan) Dudrey at the Methodist Church in Sundance, Wyoming. They were the first couple to be married in that church. 

Karl worked construction in Wyoming, ranched in Montana, and came back to Wyoming to go to work for his brother-in-law, Bob Cundy at Bob’s Production Services until his retirement in 1995. Karl was known for planting a big, beautiful garden each year in his green house and making sure every bird in the neighborhood had a filled birdhouse to visit. Karl was quite the teaser… whenever a nurse, aide, or doctor would get close to him, not even touching him, he would say “OUCH”. 

Karl was preceded in death 8 months and 3 days prior by his beautiful, loving wife of 71 years, Joan, and their son Kendall Dean 2 ½ years ago. He is also preceded in death by his parents, sister Eda Gose, sister Ellen (Dorman) Ewing, sister Anna (Wallace) Canfield, brother Kenneth (Dorthea), sister Irene (Sam) Snell, brother-in-law Bob Cundy, brother-in-law and sister-in-law Dean (Irma) Hutchins, father-in-law Richard Dudrey, step father-in-law and mother-in-law Cecil (Murel) Maddox, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends. Life was just not the same for Karl after losing all of his sisters, brother, in-laws and friends. One can only imagine the reunion they must be having in Heaven.

Karl is survived by son Richard (Becky) of Casper, son Vernon of Casper, daughter Karla (Larry) Waters of Casper, and bonus son Keith Boschee of Casper. He is also survived by grandson Shawn (Jackie) of South Dakota, grandson Justin (Lexi) of South Dakota, granddaughter Christine of Colorado, grandson David of Alaksa, granddaughter Brittni (Ryan) of California, grandson Eddy (Tami Vold Larsen) Lowndes of Casper, grandson Cory (Augi) of Colorado, granddaughter Lindy (Jeremy) Mundorf of Casper, 7 great grandchildren, brother-in-law Don Gose, sister-in-law Verna Cundy, numerous nieces, nephews, and family in Denmark.

We would like to thank the staff at Park Place Assisted Living from the bottom of our hearts for their love and companionship since Karl and Joan moved in the Spring of 2021. We would also like to thank Caring Edge Hospice for their unwavering love and support. You are very appreciated.
