Obituary: Frederick Carl Horenburger

DELRAY BEACH — Frederick Carl Horenburger of Delray Beach died on Dec. 12. He was 83.

8365626488?profile=RESIZE_180x180Mr. Horenburger was the owner of Fred’s Tennis Classics Inc. and well-known for providing customers with his expert advice and knowledge in the tennis world.

He was a star athlete in basketball and other sports in his youth, but by his late 20s tennis became his overwhelming sport of choice. His career in tennis spanned over 45 years in the Delray Beach area, including 17 years as the tennis pro at the Gulf Stream Bath and Tennis Club.

Known for his excellent stringing capabilities, he strung rackets for weekend tennis warriors, world-class players and one president of the United States, George H.W. Bush.

Born on Feb. 22, 1937, in New York City, Mr. Horenburger spent much of his youth on Staten Island and Long Island. He attended Northfield Mount Hermon and Tufts University prior to joining the Marines, where he played on the basketball team during his tour of duty.

Mr. Horenburger is survived by his devoted wife of 29 years, Leslie B. Horenburger, his son Fred Horenburger Jr., daughter, Dana Schweitzer, granddaughter, Emily Mosher (Shawn), grandson, Jack Scarton, great-granddaughter, Amelia Annabelle Mosher, sisters, Julie Tarelton and Anne Lahr, and brother, James Horenburger.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date when it is safe to gather the many people whose lives were touched by this gentle man.

For those who would like to make a donation in Mr. Horenburger’s memory, consider a contribution to the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network, 4520 East West Highway, Suite 610, Bethesda, MD 20814.
