Big Freddy is gone. Im lost for words. I remember meeting him at our old house in Bloomfield early seventies. Him and his girl friend just came down to visit. He was driving a gold color van with carpeting and teardrop side windows. Freddy was a very tall Handsome Cousin with sandy blonde hair and wide shoulders to me. He was very comforting to know. Miss you Freddy. God Bless XOXOX Forever RIP. Your First Cousin Cliff

Fred, you were the best friend anybody could possibly ask for. Always giving and never wanting anything in return. We will miss dearly coming over to your house, and just chatting about anything and everything. And of coarse watching your beloved sports. It’s so hard for us knowing we can’t see you anymore or hear your voice. You will be forever in our hearts and minds. We are fortunate to have had you in our lives. Rest In Peace Fred.

Wow what a shock to hear of Fred’s passing,my condolences to all of his family.Always so calm,never excited,was always there to help any way he could.Some of best memories was with the hockey team,he was so smooth and graceful on the blades he got the nickname (Freddy Lafleur) thing with him and the Spitfire and wipers,were headed home from a tournament in north bay,hit a major rain storm,I said Fred got an idea pull over,took a couple of our long skate laces,tied one to each wiper and from inside back and forth no problem sailed all the way home.Lately when I saw the Caddy in the grocery store parking lot,there exited Fred in his beloved trench coat,a true classic!!Many beer and wings on the first out door patio on Celina st. Friday’s after retirement always had great chats when our paths crossed,going to miss that “Friend “ Rest In Peace Fred.
