Frederick J. Alsruhe, 86

November 15, 2019

Frederick J. Alsruhe, 86, of Lancaster, PA, passed away on November 15, 2019, at the Lancaster General Hospital. Born in Baltimore, MD, he was the son of the late Fred J. and Sarah G. (Carnaggio) Alsruhe. Fred was the beloved husband of Estelle (Lind) Alsruhe, and they would have celebrated 61 years of marriage this coming December.
Fred was a graduate of the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and the University of Baltimore. He worked as a Certified Public Accountant in a partnership firm in Baltimore, and although he did not practice, he had also obtained a law degree in order to provide his clients a better understanding of the tax laws. A veteran, he honorably served his country with the US Coast Guard during the Korean conflict. In earlier years he was an avid tennis player and loved being outdoors fishing. In later years, he enjoyed painting, and produced many scenic pieces. Fred and Estelle enjoyed traveling both stateside and abroad, visiting with family and friends, and especially loved spending time with their grandchildren.
In addition to his wife, Fred is survived by son, Eric Alsruhe, his wife Claire, and their children Zoe and Felix, who live in France, and son, Ethan Alsruhe, who lives in Vermont.
Services will be private.

Estelle . . . I wanted you to know that a plaque has been installed in the Ocean Pines Tennis Club Memorial Garden to honor and remember Fred. I am probably the only remaining active player who is still playing from the time Fred graced the courts, but I remember him fondly for his many attributes on and off the courts. . . . Blessings to you, Dale

Dear Essie – Steve would always come home with the biggest smile on his face after tennis with Fred. He was such a great guy,  I especially admired his art work. Sending you my sincerest sympathy.
