Greetings to everyone:
We’ll continue to pray for the repose of Fred’s soul. We’ll pray for the family that they feel God’s presence and find Peace and Comfort in His Holy Scripture.
I worked with Fred for many years in the Department of Mathematics and we participated in the same doctoral program at A&M College Station. Working with him was inspiring - he always prepared lessons with students in mind and he was punctual in completing assigned departmental tasks. He assisted in many projects. He was always joyful and thoughtful. He will be missed. In Jesus name we pray for him and family. May he Rest In Peace. Blessings and Smiles
