My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I met Fred in Grief Share at St. Thomas. He was a great man who shared a lot of great stories about his life, wife, and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief.

To My Beloved Brother, Fred
Don't know where to begin. First of all, Thank you for being a wonderful and loving brother who has always protected and guided me. I will always cherish our memories of growing up together. Even though you were only three years older, I have always looked up to you, not only, as a loving brother, but as a father figure too. Until we meet again, you will be in my heart forever. I will miss you dearly. Love always, your sister Rose.

I have always admired and looked up to Uncle Fred and appreciated everything he has done for me and my siblings growing up. One of my proudest moment was when he attended my first kindergarten play. He helped me through my struggles with Math in grade school. He attended my high school graduation and taught me how to prepare my 1st income tax. Some of the best memories I have of him are when he took us to church; apple/tomato farm; Detroit zoo, Cedar point, and to Point Pelee beach in Canada, etc. The best part was our family gatherings at Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. He also has given me advice throughout the years. I will miss you. Rest in Peace dear Uncle Fred. Love, your niece, Eva

Got the great pleasure once to take Fred out to breakfast after mass ( pre COVID) and had a wonderful time chatting and learning about his life and how he grew up . He was from a generation that worked hard and never complained. They don’t make men like him anymore. Fred was one of a kind . May he Rest In Peace . Thanks for sharing your Dad with me Sharon ! I will miss him .

I suppose most people have a favorite family member; for me, this was my Uncle Fred, my mother's only sibling. He was beloved by our entire family and contributed enormously to our lives growing up. In many ways I was treated as a son, directing me in life and providing counseling when needed. He was a most generous and loving man, whose passing leaves a vacancy which cannot otherwise be filled. My uncle was highly regarded for his wisdom, charity and friendship. I cherish all the days we had with him, and he will be dearly missed.
Rest in peace my uncle, my friend
