To Lisa, Josh, Jordan, and Geri,
I met Fred while working in the Emergency Dept. at the Mt. Sinai Medical Center. We became friends immediately, his humor caught my initial attention, his professionalism cemented our bond. Renee just informed me an hour ago of his passing on. I was dumbfounded. I have provided his team with resuscitation training since his private practice began. When I was diagnosed with Heart Failure in 2005, Fred had heard of my challenges and contacted me, he is one of the Supermen in my autobiography, "Our Change of Heart" sub-titled "Amongst Supermen". Words offer no relief, when a loved one leaves unexpectedly we grieve. I can share - I close my eyes and I can picture my friend's ear to ear smile whenever we met. I can also express having died multiple times -We are not human beings searching for enlightenment, but Spiritual energies experiencing this Earthly Life's duality. Learn to Live like you are dying... Gene Shimandle

Fred was more than a dentist, we both loved baseball. Fred would brag to me about his son playing baseball in college. I would tell him about my daughter playing softball in college. Me being an umpire for 30 years we had something in common. Fred would tell me about buying pocket knives, Glenlivet Scotch and family. My wife went to him when she was a little girl and hid dad had his practice in Twinsburg. I looked forward to my visits at his office. RIP Fred you will be missed but never forgotten.

I will miss that for sure. Hang on to your many, many, many beautiful memories, they will help, I promise. Please know that your are in my thoughts during this difficult time.

Fred and I were US dads, and I'll never forget how he once coached the US baseball team playing on the lower school field. The score was tied and it went into extra innings. Jordan was up and he hit an RBI and US won! Fred was ecstatic, showing his emotion and love like he always did. What a moment and what love and devotion Fred showed the team and his son! Patients of his remember how he would kibitz with kindness when they saw him at Trader Joe's and how he once consulted his colleagues, bringing an x-ray of their daughter's teeth to a meal they were having outside the office,, concluding that there was no need for dental action. These patients loved him as a dentist and as a great guy. For my part, he cared, greeted me at Heinen's with affection -- and did so much for so many.

I've never met a more special person than Dr. Fred Lurie! I was initially a patient of his father-in-law's. So I've been with Fred Lurie for a very long time. I will for ever miss his laughter and his stories. Especially about the family he loved so very dearly. My condolences to all of you. Cherryl Cavanaugh
