I remember when I was little and Uncle Fred had me for the Christmas gift exchange. He got me a ballet bar, and I was so excited! I remember it was bright pink, and there was a way you could stick it to or hang it on the door so you could practice ballet in your room. I was elated over this gift and remember talking about it for a while and saying, “Uncle Fred gave me my favorite present!” I just thought it was amazing that he came up with a gift I would like so much because I don’t think I told anyone I wanted that.

I have been praying for Uncle Fred and am so sorry for what happened. I wish I could be there with my dad and all of you. May God comfort everyone and bring peace.

Love,
Tracy

Dear Sandy and Family, I was ever so saddened to hear about Fred and please know that you're in my thoughts and prayers! Fred was just such a wonderful, friendly, funny, loving guy! So many great memories of him and all the "laughs" we all had at our local hang outs in the 'hood! He will be truly missed, but never forgotten. My deepest sympathies....Love you, Mary and Harry

Shooting pool in Johns basement and Fred was there giving us pointers. It was awesome! In the short time I spent time with him and his son John, I saw the love he had for pool, and watching his son play.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon him. Rest In Peace Fred!
