I am Fred’s eldest sister. Unfortunately, we were to not know each other. I hope he enjoys his new world.
My condolences to his family.

Although I don’t ever remember meeting my
Uncle Fred, I know he was a dear man and he meant a lot to my mom, Patti, as well as many others. I wish him to Rest In Peace, painlessly, and I pray for our family and those that were close to him. I wish I had an opportunity to know him better.

With love and condolences,
His nephew,

Benjamin Sutherland
