Longtime Mount Shasta resident, Fred Nebiolini, died on Sunday, April 14, 2013, at age 72.

Born on September 24, 1940 in San Francisco, California to Margaret (Diaz) and Ernest Nebiolini, he was raised in South San Francisco.

Fred was an altar boy and attended All-Souls. In elementary school he was called “Duchi” by his friends and family. Fred graduated from South San Francisco High School, Class of 1958.

Upon graduating high school, Fred went to barber college. He was a barber at SFO International Airport; and owned The Hare Hunters barber shop in South San Francisco with his partner, Isaac “Ike” Sanchez, cutting hair and laughing a lot side-by-side for 12 years.

In 1976 Fred moved to Mount Shasta. He owned Nebiolini’s Vets Club for 32 years and sold it upon retiring in 2008.

Fred loved golfing, duck hunting, fishing and his dogs. He was a “South City Boy” and loved sports, football and baseball being his favorites. He was a lifelong fan of the San Francisco 49ers.
