On March 21, 1975, Fred married Cheryl Lynn De Vries at the Phoenix Christian Reformed Church in Phoenix, Arizona. The couple lived in Phoenix for a while where Fred owned and operated Haan Printing. In 1978, they moved to Sioux Center, Iowa, where he began working at Dordt College (now known as Dordt University). They raised three children, Eric, Paula, and David.

Memberships throughout Fred’s life included Phoenix CRC in Phoenix, AZ, Bethel CRC, Faith CRC, and currently First CRC, all in Sioux Center, IA.
