Fredrick Antone Engberg, Jr., age 79, passed away on November 15, 2019, at Golden Acres Manor of Carrington, ND.
Fred was born in Carrington on May 10, 1940, the first son of Fred and Marie (Driessen) Engberg. He graduated from Carrington High School and went on to graduate from Valley City State Teachers’ College. He then began his teaching and coaching career at Butte, Bowman, Tower City, Pingree, and Colfax. After teaching for a number of years, he decided to make a career change and went on to own the 5 Spot in Carrington and The Safari Bar in Bordulac, ND. When Fred owned the 5 Spot, he was well known for the food he prepared for customers, which included Steak Tar Tar, Stews, Chili, and Smoked Turkey. He also managed the Golf Course and The Vet’s Club, both of Carrington. In addition, Fred worked for Sioux Railroad in 1963 and the Northern Pacific Railroad in 1965.
Fred owned thoroughbreds, which he raced in various locations in the United States and Canada. He had many other hobbies, which included fishing, bowling, baseball, and cooking. Fred had an infectious laugh and truly loved his nieces and nephews.
