Fredlund was hospitalized last month. As death approached, family and friends played and sang “Stand By Me” and other songs of Fredlund’s lifetime. In the final moments, son Steve was on one side of his bed, and son Larry and Larry’s wife, Dina, on the other. The life-support machines were silent, the door was shut, and music was playing, Steve said.

“It was in this setting, just saturated with the sound of blues music, flanked by his sons, that Doug took his last breath and ultimately, his second heart stopped.”

Survivors also include siblings Connie Lindberg, Nancy Anderson and Michael Fredlund, all of Cambridge; 10 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
