He was born May 31, 1941 in Carrabelle to Jennings Woods Jetton and Mary Mariah Mock Jetton.
Fred was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing, raising hunting dogs and following his children and grandchildren to every event in their lives. He was self-employed most of his life, worked as a city commissioner for Carrabelle, served as president as the Franklin County Seafood Workers Association and was a member of the SMARRT board working to restore oysters in the Apalachicola Bay.
Fred left us the morning of Nov. 25 doing what he loved most, spending time with his family and friends in the woods hunting.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his sister Ruby Brooks and husband Stanley, his brother Robert Louis (Jack) Jetton, wife Ester, and his son Fred Phillips Jetton Jr.
