Post WWII Service:
Post WWII Civilian Occupation(s): In 1946 Fred returned to his previous job as a truck driver in the shipping department at Automatic Sprinkler Corp. of America, in Youngstown, OH. In 1948 he moved to Los Angeles, CA, and for the same company installed fire protection systems for a short time. He was transferred to the engineering department and later went into sales. In 1960, Fred, with two partners, formed their own company (Southwest Fire Protection Co.) in Los Angeles and remained there until his retirement in 1982.
Thoughts About the 58th:
Comments: I regret to inform you that Fred G. Baun, Jr. passed away July 9, 2002. Fred was eager to serve his country when he was a young man during WW II and has been an outstanding citizen all his life. A wonderful husband, father and grandfather. His life was an example to all. Sincerely, his wife, Nellanna Baun.
Mr. Baun is buried in Glen Haven Memorial Park in Sylmar, CA.
