Fred Coppersmith, 53 of Wesley Chapel passed away on December 8th, surrounded by his wife Lori and his 2 daughters Patty and Alyssa. Along with his wife and daughters, Fred was survived by his twin grandchildren, 3 sisters Debbie Coppersmith, Mary Bryan, Rita Zobel and her husband Charles; his brother Kevin Coppersmith and his wife Rebecca and their families, along with many nieces, nephews, and extended family. Fred, known to many as “Big Fred”, never met a stranger. All who knew him loved him. He would do anything for anyone-day or night. A mechanic by trade he and his wife owned Big Freds Auto Repair on US 41 in Lutz, Florida. The last 5 years were given to us on borrowed time. He lived each moment to the fullest blessing everyone with his laughter, jokes, pranks, and most of all love. A Celebration of his life will be at a later date when we can all be together. An update will be provided on Facebook when a date is determined. Coastal Cremations Lutz was entrusted with Fred’s arrangements.
