Joel Ryan Fredrickson, 46, of Bradenton, FL passed away on June 11, 2019 in Bradenton, FL.

Joel was born in Peoria, IL to Jan Fredrickson and Melody Badgerow on December 4, 1972.

He was a sales manager for Kirby for several years, which allowed him to live in many states and cities. New Orleans, LA was one of his favorites and where he became a devoted Saints fan. Cigars became a hobby and then a passion. He joined a group of cigar enthusiasts and they traded cigars between members from around the world. He had so many friends who all would comment on Joel's sweet, gentle caring nature and quick wit. He held everyone close to his heart, especially his family.

Joel is survived by his mother, Melody Badgerow of Bradenton, sister, Heidi Tosti of Clearwater, sister, Molly Fredrickson of Bradenton, niece, Jessie Tosti of Clearwater, and nephew, Sawyer Tosti of Clearwater. He was preceded in death by his father, Jan Fredrickson way too soon and both sets of grandparents. He also lost his beloved Aunt, Jill Fredrickson and his beloved brother-in-law, Ray Tosti, who became the brother he never had.

Joel loved children and had two favorite charities, St. Jude and Make a Wish Foundation. He would feel so honored for donations to be made in his name.

CandleI am so sorry for your loss. These words bring me peace--maybe at some point in your grieving they will do the same for you. Love and peace to you, Sandy Kramer Henderson

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Pamela Badgerow Adams on Jun 13, 2019

Death is so final. It is hard letting our loved ones go. “We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.” Joel has soared over the horizon and he is living the better life. One day, one day, we will all gather and soar over the horizon. So, sweet, sweet Melody and Heidi and Molly, this is your hope, our hope. We live and believe it to be true. Joel fought the good fight here on earth, while loving and serving his family and friends. Now his reward is realized. He has no more pain. How lucky the family was to have had Joel…I know the pain of loosing a brother. Sadness engulfs me even as time passes. It will for all of you as well. May God be with you all. May God give you all comfort and peace. May He give you all the memories to sustain you each, as He has done for me and others.
Love, Your cousin, Pamela Badgerow Adams and Normer Adams.
