In Memory of Frederick V. Mink Jr 1938–2015

In Memory of Frederick V. Mink Jr 1938–2015

FM Brush

It’s with a heavy heart that the FM Brush Company announces the passing of our beloved C.E.O, Fredrick V. Mink Jr.

Frederick Mink began his career as a physicist, working as a lead scientist at NASA Goddard. After many years, Fred decided to come back to New York with his wife and kids in tow to join his father in the family brush business. Fred is 3rd generation of the Mink family to run the FM Brush Company working with his family to expand the Glendale facility and open our facility in Thailand in 1987.

As the third generation to take on the family business, Fred had a lot on his plate. With his grandfather successfully setting up a business and his father successfully keeping it going, he had a lot to live up to.

However, Fred combined his personal experience and his passion for brushes to create some of the most distinctive brushes on the market today. As a true brush-maker, Fred worked with independent artists interpreting their dreams into tools for their creative journey. Fred felt his greatest accomplishment next to his family was his longstanding friendship within the artists’ community.

Fred’s legacy continues in his family, who stand by his commitment to the arts and artists alike. He will be missed greatly by all those who he touched, but the younger generation is already taking up the mantle.

For those who wish to find out more about Fred’s incredible life, have a look at the obituaries on a site like Obituaries can help to give more insight into how a person lived their life, and Fred certainly had a lot that was worth mentioning. Simply enter his name into the search bar of the census record, along with the any keywords relvant to him, and you’ll find a wealth of information about his life. There’s more to know about him than we could ever hope to be able to write here!

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers,

The Mink Family
