Frederick A. Fix, 66, a chiropractor in the Buffalo area for 30 years, died unexpectedly Friday (Sept. 25, 1998) in his Amherst home.
Fix had offices in Amherst and the City of Tonawanda. At the time of his retirement three years ago, he still made house calls, according to Carol Martin Fix, his wife of 34 years.
Mrs. Fix said that her husband worked long hours and that he was "there all the time" for his patients.
A native of Buffalo, Fix was a graduate of Burgard High School and Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa. He served in the Air Force during the Korean War and was based in Japan for three years.
Surviving, in addition to his wife, are a daughter, Lisa K. Highway of Cheektowaga; a son, Scott E. of Houston; his mother, Florence of the Village of Hamburg; a brother, James of the Village of Hamburg, who also is a chiropractor; and a granddaughter.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Lester H. Wedekindt Funeral Home, 3290 Delaware Ave., Kenmore.
