Fred Squires Obituary, Death – Mr. Fred Squires, the renowned doctor, may you rest in peace. He was a wonderful buddy of mine, a classmate of mine at Penn Medicine’s radiography department, and a fellow graduate of Temple University’s School of Medicine, where I also earned my medical degree. He had been a resident at Einstein Medical Center at the beginning of his career. Everyone who had the good fortune to have known him and who had affection for him will mourn his passing because it came as a shock to them.
For each and every one of them, his leaving is a great loss. Because of this, we felt the utmost respect and awe for him. Fred and I are “performing” a terrible juggling act in this photo, which was taken during the Albert Einstein College of Medicine graduation ceremony (yes those are oranges). My heart is breaking as I sit here and write you this letter because I have to let you know that my son-in-law, Dr. Fredric Barton Squires, passed away lately. He worked in the medical industry. He died quietly this morning while being surrounded by the loved ones and friends he had made over his life.
This declaration applies to Stephanie Squires, Madeline, and Amelia Squires, in addition to myself. In addition to fighting two different types of liver cancer, Fred also battled neuroendocrine bone cancer. Throughout the two years that he received chemotherapy and radiation treatment, he fought with an extraordinary amount of fortitude and dignity. Two years passed while he was in conflict. Ultimately, cancer prevailed in the conflict with its adversaries. The greatest care possible was given to Fred, including hospice care at home 24 hours a day for five days as he neared the end of his life.
Lori Corbman endured a great deal of misery. Let the thought of him bring you blessings. filled to the brim with energy. Focused. thoughtful and intelligent. Helpful. Recollections of the purple thunderbolt, the white limo, and being named Queen of the Prom before it was even a thing. Always ready with a smile and a lighthearted attitude. The loss of this individual has diminished the quality of life for everyone. May you finally get some sleep, TH.
