Obituary: Fred R. Sargent (May 22, 1928 – Oct. 6, 2013)

Fred R. Sargent
Fred R. Sargent passed away Oct. 6, 2013. He was a Del Norte resident for 55 years. He loved the Smith River, the beauty and opportunities of the area.

Born to Bernice and Perry Sargent on May 22, 1928, in Jacksonville, Ore., Fred spent his early life in Medford and Prospect, Ore. He left home at a young age and began looking for a way to support himself. In Prospect, he met Dale Hamner, his future father-in-law who introduced him to logging. Dale taught Fred to fall trees using a crosscut saw. It was just the beginning of a long career in logging.

When Fred was 18, he joined the Navy to serve his country and was stationed in China.

On returning to Prospect, Dale introduced Fred to his daughter Mildred (Millie). After a short courtship, they eloped to Reno, along with Millie’s brother George Prauss and girlfriend Joan Weber for a double wedding. Fred and Millie had 64 years together before Millie passed away in 2012.

In 1952, Fred moved his family of four to Blocksburg, Calif. The promise of good logging sent Fred, Dale, Ed and George Prauss to new territory. The families worked and moved together which made for a very large and close-knit family. In 1957, the whole family moved to Crescent City, which turned out to be the final stop. Fred worked for Simpson Lumber Company and Rellim becoming known for his expertise in falling huge redwood trees, landing them right on-the-spot.

Frances Short
Fran Short passed away peacefully Oct. 6, 2013. Fran was born in Crescent City Feb. 5, 1928, where she lived her entire life with the exception of five years in Central Point, Ore. She attended local schools, graduating from the Del Norte High School class of 1946. After high school she attended Humboldt State College and eventually went to work for the Draft Board in Crescent City.

During that time she met John Short, whom she married in 1952 at her family home on Ninth Street in Crescent City. Shortly after they married, she and John purchased Farmers Insurance, which they owned and operated as John W. Short Insurance for nearly 30 years. Fran loved the business and, more importantly, loved the people that came through the door. The business was a “family affair” as Fran and John’s daughter grew up in the office.
