Ryan Fredregill Funeral Director ~ Owner fredregillfunerals@gmail.com

Ryan was born in Des Moines, the son of Fred and Jolene (Saxton) Fredregill. When Ryan was two, his parents moved to Zearing and opened Fredregill Funeral Home. Ryan attended and graduated from Colo-NESCO high school in 1999. He then attended Dallas Institute of Mortuary Science and graduated with a degree in mortuary science in 2000. Ryan relocated to Kansas City and worked for Park Lawn Funeral Home there for over two years. In 2003 he decided to move back to Iowa and assist his father with the family business. Ryan started Fredregill Family Funeral Home in Baxter in the spring of 2009, bought his father out in 2016, and added the Polk City location in 2016. 

 

Ryan and the girls attend the United Congregational Church of Christ in Baxter, and is a member of the Baxter Fun Committee, National Funeral Director's Association, American Society of Embalmers, Baxter Masonic Lodge, and Za-Ga-Zig Shrine. He enjoys spending time with his family, golfing, riding motorcycles, camping, boating, but most of all helping families during their time of need. Ryan has a true understanding of small town Iowa and how important the funeral ceremonies are to the community. It truly is Ryan's calling and passion in life to be able to serve.
