Fred Surber

Beloved long-time Quincy resident Fred Surber died on March 18, 2023, at the age of 87.

He was born in Porterville, California, in 1936.

Fred, his wife Sharon and their three children moved to Quincy in 1970 when he was named the Plumas and Sierra County Agricultural Commissioner and Sealer of Weights and Measures.

After retiring in 1996, Fred began planting and tending to the flowers at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair. During the fair, Fred and Sharon would assist with the floriculture and agriculture entries every summer until she died in 2016. He continued to be active with the fair until recently and was also a supporter of the Plumas-Sierra County Fair Foundation. Fred was honored and humbled to be named Grand Marshall of the fair parade twice, in 2011 and 2019.

Fred was a Rotarian for nearly 50 years and served as secretary of the Rotary Club of Quincy for two decades.

An active member and lay-leader at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Quincy, Fred thanked God daily for the gift of life and shared his faith by being a joyful, loving disciple of his Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

Fred enjoyed woodworking and crafts, model railroading, gardening and traveling. He is survived by his children, Cathy, Tim and Karen and granddaughter Melissa.

A memorial service is scheduled for 1pm Saturday, April 1, at the Tulsa Scott Building at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds. It will be immediately followed by a brief graveside burial ceremony at Quincy Cemetery.

The family requests any memorial contributions be made to Our Savior Lutheran Church and/or The Plumas-Sierra County Fair Foundation.
