Uncle Fred was a wonderful man and truly set an example as a husband, a father, a family man. Uncle Fred was devoted to his family.
He always had the biggest smile and the biggest personality. His eyes would get so big telling his stories and he was so animated. He would make us all laugh and laugh. Those are my favorite memories. He was a great uncle and I hope he knew that this family was always so very proud of him and always admired him.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I never got to meet Frederick, but I do have the pleasure of knowing Jan. The way Jan is sweet and warm, thoughtful and strong, independent and a loving embrace, I am thankful to the man that Frederick was who raised such an incredible daughter. I am saddened by the loss this world has experienced in losing him.

To vow to hold him in memory and prayers, Elyse.
