Frederick "Fred" Gunnip Obituary

Frederick A. Gunnip, 60 of Syracuse, passed away Sunday, October 15, 2023 in Upstate Medical Center. Born April 2, 1963, he was the son of Hildegard Gobel Gunnip and the late Francis Gunnip. A painter by trade, Fred was self-employed for many years. 


Fred loved music and enjoyed playing the guitar in his home.  He also loved stand-up comedy and sweets.  His true passion, however, was his unwavering loyalty to Syracuse University basketball and football. Any conversation with Fred would include his take on the team.
