Fred Catiller (1912-2001) was a salesman and semi-professional magician in both stage and close-up.
Catiller, born to a Vaudevillian, always had a love for show business. His first "gig" was at age five when his father brought him on stage to sing. He earned a living as an master of ceremonies, a radio show host, a tool and die maker, a magician, and after marriage as a salesman of tools using magic to make friends and sales.
After his children were grown, he resumed his comedy magic career until his retirement.
