Fred was a friend and neighbor from the past....we grew up across the street from each other! Seeing his name in the obits today brought a lot of memories back. His parents and mine were great friends "in the old days" and I now volunteer at the museum and see "Betty" Wallwork's name on the donation sheets!! I am unable to attend the services but my thoughts and prayers will be with the family; and Sue - my belief is that our loved ones are not really gone they are just not able to be seen...I'm sure he is up there....possibly playing cards with the "bridge club" thoughts are with you.

Fred seemed to always be in a good mood and loved coming out to the DSC whether to shoot or talk. Invariably he would come out almost every Saturday evening for Silhouette and see how the guys were doing and talk guns and shooting. Saturday evenings will definitely have a different feel this year without Fred. The DSC will miss him as I am sure his family will. Condolences to his Family and Friends.

Like many of us at the DSC, I too will miss Fred and his cheery and eager disposition. I very fondly remember many Sunday afternoons at the DSC talking with him about the history of Rochester, good polish food, his service in the Navy and how proud he was of his family. Of course, no conversation with Fred was ever complete without him revealing his not-so-secret love affair with his 22's. I always enjoyed hearing him enthusiastically tell stories about every new piece of smallbore history that made its way home to his safe. I could go on and on about what a big hearted and friendly man Fred was, but anyone who met him even once, knew this about him instantly. Fred you will be sorely missed and I wish you a safe journey to the next place, and may your soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.

I will miss my conversations with Fred at the Detroit Sportsmens Congress. He loved to talk about squirrel hunting and rifles. I think I will miss him most on Fridays during sight in season. May he rest in peace and God be with him.

Though I moved to Florida a couple years ago and only saw Fred about once a year...I will miss him and his "stories". Fred was well liked by everyone and will be missed by all.

We are so grateful for our cousin/nephew Fred. What a kind, gentle spirit to have had in our lives. He was always present – with a smile, a kind word, a sense of humor, much wisdom, a wonderful, accepting attitude. He loved his family dearly. May it bring you peace and comfort to know the deep and lasting joy you brought to his life.

We are so sorry to miss the service, but please know we will be with you in spirit. Sending much love from Colorado: Amy and Keith, Laura and Cory, and Alyce

WoW! I cannot believe that Fred is gone!
While I haven't had a lot of time in the recent past to do too much at the DSC, there is one pleasant constant that I will sorely miss now; Fred's smiling face and pleasant demeanor.
Every time that I saw Fred at the club, no matter how much time had lapsed since we last met, he would always greet me with a friendly "Hello". In conversation he was always genuinely interested in how other people were doing and with what was new in their lives. Fred always had a way of making you smile and if you ever had a job to do, he was always one of the first to offer his help in any way that he could.
Fred was a definite positive asset to the club and equally beneficial to the lives of everyone with whom he came in contact with. We all are lessened by his passing.
I wish Fred's family my most sincere condolences, and please know that you do not mourn alone in your loss...

I didn't spend much time on the rifle range but I remember Fred was always willing to help those who needed it. We met during site-in season and he was always willing to help new shooters. When I became a Range Officer at Detroit Sportsmen's Congress, Fred had my hat made for me and embroidered with my name on it. He will be missed as he was a great asset to the club and contributed many hours helping those who also enjoyed our sport. To Fred's family, I am sorry for your loss. He will be missed by those who loved him, all his friends and aquaintances.

I will miss Fred. Fred and I shared many a conversation at the Detroit Sportsman Congress' Saturday evening silhouette matches. Fred told me he enjoyed just coming out and being outdoors at the club watching and sometimes shooting the matches. I always asked him what new guns he purchased and he would elaborate on recent purchases.
May he rest in peace and may God be with him 'till we meet again.
