In Memoriam: Fred Dichter

It is with a heavy heart that we share news of the passing of our most recent Regional Chair, Fred Dichter. We will miss his gentle humor and his dedication to the field of labor arbitration. The Southeast Region has made a donation in his memory to the NAA Research and Education Fund, and we encourage like-minded individuals to do the same:

Below, we post a notice from his family (leaving out the specifics of the services and the like, out of respect for the family):

In Loving Memory
Fredric Ross Dichter
1946 – 2023

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the death of Fredric Ross Dichter. Fred was born on April 2, 1946 and was the cherished husband of Barbara Dichter and beloved father of Erica Vogel of Sussex, WI along with her husband Chuck Vogel and daughter Jennifer Beiro; and Ron Dichter of Vero Beach, FL along with his wife Diana Dichter and two children Stiles Dichter and Emmy Dichter. Fred died peacefully at home on January 31, 2023, at the age of 76 with his wife Barbara by his side.

Fred had been diagnosed with Glioblastoma (Brain Cancer) on November 4, 2022. The doctors gave Fred less than 30 days to live, but in typical “Fred” fashion he showed them and lived 3 times longer than the doctors said he would.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to:
Congregation Emanu-El

May Fred’s memory be for a blessing.
