Frederick Jude Innerbichler

September 14, 1951 — July 4, 2024


With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Frederick (Fred) Jude Innerbichler of Polson, MT. Fred was born in Hermosa Beach, CA on September 14, 1951, to Fred H. Innerbichler, and Manuelita (Landavazo) Innerbichler of Anaheim CA. He passed away on July 4, 2024, at 8:14pm, just in time to watch the fireworks show while he left earth. 

Fred grew up in Anaheim, CA with his parents and his two older brothers. He graduated from Loara High School in 1969, then attended Cypress College where he studied Theater Arts, Lighting, Set Design and Forms of Government. It was there that he met his first wife Sharlene (Ueberroth) Innerbichler-Blea. They had four beautiful daughters together. In 1986 Fred met his second wife Melodie (Brown) Innerbichler and later welcomed another daughter and a son. During his time in California, he worked as a carpenter. Fred was a skilled craftsman and liked woodworking. 

In 1991 Fred moved to Polson, MT for an opportunity to work as a manager for Tamsco (later DRS Technologies). Polson is where he found his forever home with his family. Fred loved Montana and enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing. He loved musical theater and would often be heard singing tunes by his children in the morning while he made them breakfast. He loved his children more than anything. They were his pride and joy. He loved baseball and coached many softball teams for his kids over the years. He also enjoyed playing pool and played in several leagues. He had a friendly demeanor and liked to talk and socialize with whomever crossed his path. His sense of humor and reassuring winks will be sorely missed. 

Fred is preceded in death by his parents, and his brother Arthur Innerbichler. 

Fred leaves behind his six children, Kameron Sakaguchi (Innerbichler) of San Antonio, TX; Dana Innerbichler of Kalispell, MT; Dione (Innerbichler) Davis and husband Brent Davis of Hayward, CA; Andria Innerbichler of Loma Linda, CA; Hiliary Innerbichler of Stanton, CA and Damian Innerbichler of Polson Montana.
