Frederick Contant passed away peacefully on June 8, 2019 at the age of 85 surrounded by love. Fred, beloved husband of Barbara Contant for 62 years, was born on January 15, 1934 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Fred and Barb first met through friends and were married on February 16, 1957 at St. Lawrence Church in Price Hill, Ohio. He was the loving father of Susan Griesl (Scott), Mary Sowders (Jay Bosse), Debbie Wendelken (Melissa Hoffman), Fred Contant (Karen), Nancy Ranz (Scott), and David Contant (Laura). He was also the cherished grandfather of 24 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings Eileen Gangloff (late Paul), Pat Wiebold (Bill), and Judy (Jerry) Luebbers, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He deeply loved his family and dedicated his life to creating special memories with them.

Fred spent his early professional years as a butcher, grocer, and real estate agent. He went on to work for the Ohio Lottery and retired after nearly 20 years with the organization. He loved golf and had a remarkable hole in one on a par four at Woodland Golf Course. He was also a lifelong fan of the Cincinnati Reds, The Lone Ranger, and James Bond movies. He was humble, hard-working and committed to his family. Both Fred and Barb loved to camp and travel and were snowbirds in Gulf Shores, AL for many years after retirement. Fred was a loyal member and usher of St. Susanna Catholic Church in Mason, OH for almost two decades. He will be missed dearly, but we know he is in a better place with his wonderful parents, Fred and Helen (Raabe) Contant who were waiting in heaven for him.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at St. Susanna Church in Mason, OH at 9:30 am at 616 Reading Rd., Mason, OH 45040 at 9:30 am followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:30 am. Memorial donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association, 10200 Alliance Rd. Suite #101 Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Fred loved his golf. A while back when Uncle Mike could still navigate the course, they would play together. After the round, Uncle Mike always talked about how he would get in Fred's head during the round. But in listening carefully, I always thought Fred got in Uncle Mike's head. PS don't tell Uncle Mike! Fred is one of a kind. Sending hugs to your entire family.
