Fred Nielsen, long-time beloved member of the Leap'n Lions Born Free RV Club, passed away at the age of 83 on January 26, 2021, surrounded by his family. Fred and his lovely wife, Maiken, had homes in Newtown, PA, and Hopewell, NJ. Fred, who was born in Nyborg, Denmark, died at the home he built on Woodsville Tree Farm in Hopewell.

Fred and Maiken joined their Born Free friends at many rallies and in caravans. Fred is remembered by member Jack Maxcy as "a fun person to travel with on the many rallies that I attended with him. He was very mechanically inclined and he even modified the front seat in the coach to move further back so his wife Maiken had room to knit her blankets as they traveled. He was always willing to help with a mechanical problem and loved to have technical discussions around an evening campfire. Fred was a master fire builder and as the sun set you would see him gathering wood and using his custom "yellow bottle of propane" to light even the dampest wood. He was the first to come and the last to leave.

Fred and Maiken were married for 62 years. He is also survived by three children and five grandchildren.

His obituary from The Times, Trenton can be found here:
