Frederick O. Maxwell, Jr. of Kennett Square, PA departed this life at the age of 53 on April 9, 2023.
Born 1969 in Wilmington, DE, he was the son of Frederick and Sonia Maxwell.
Fred was a 1987 graduate of Kennett High School. He went on to attend Drexel University, where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Business. While working full-time, he earned two Master’s degrees and obtained a Six Sigma certification in Project Management.
Fred loved sports. He played baseball, beginning with Little League, and went on to play in high school, as well as into his adult years. In addition to baseball, Fred played basketball and enjoyed sharing his love for the game with his nephews. He believed if they were going to play ball with him, they had to learn the right way, so he taught them the art of sportsmanship by dominating over them, even though they were under 12 years old at the time. Not only did Fred enjoy playing sports, he enjoyed watching it. He was a true Philadelphia “Phanatic.” When it came to the Eagles v/s the Cowboys, get out of the room and leave him alone, or you’ll get hit with is rally towel.
In addition to being passionate about sports, he was passionate about family and had a wonderful sense of humor. He was a loving son to his father and mother, had a close relationship with his sister, Kim, and enjoyed partnering with his brother-in-law, Hallie, to have fun at Kim’s expense. Fred was a loving uncle to his 3 nephews, Stanton, Cedric, and Kolton. Just like any great uncle, he was their “big brother” by giving them that ear they needed to listen and gave them advice in a way only a true big brother / uncle could give. Fred embodied the word love, and showed it in his own special way. His infectious smile and his little sayings, like “No wayyyy!” will be forever missed.
Fred is survived by his parents Frederick Sr. and Sonia of Kennett Square, PA; his sister Kimberly Jones (Hallice) of Kennett Square, PA; three nephews Stanton, Cedric, and Kolton Jones; godson Aristotle Miguel; as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
