Fred was one of my best customers at Reily Electrical but soon he was one of my best friends. We had fun together conducting business as a game. He was jokingly known as Chief Big Smoke and I was Chief cries a Lot , seems stupid now but that was the way Fred was he loved taking care of business with loads of light heartedness. I will miss him very much.
