Alfred "Fred" Vendrasco Jr, 80, passed away after an extended illness on Friday, April 19, 2019 at home surrounded by his loving family. Fred was a lifelong resident of Vineland. He was born on February 14, 1939 to the late Fred, Sr and Anna (Carpani) Vendrasco. Fred was a graduate of Vineland High School and was a self employed vegetable farmer for 58 years, prior to that he was a school bus driver for the city of Vineland for 15 years. Fred was a member of The Vineland Produce Auction, The Landisville Fruit Growers Association, and The South Jersey Produce in East Vineland.

Fred truly enjoyed being around family and friends reminiscing about the years passed, and loved being outside working in his yard after his retirement.
