I met Fred years ago when my wife Melanie and I first moved to Walcott. I will always enjoy the time I spent with him at Community Club feeds. He liked a cold beer and a funny joke. Fred usually had a good story at the ready. He was quick witted and had an impish quality about him that made everyone smile. Fred was one of the "good ones". My wife and I were so sad to hear of his passing. Our hearts go out to his family during this time of profound loss.
Rest in peace Fred,
Tim and Melanie Hayes

A friend to all who needed a friend. My best man at my wedding. It's during times of loss like this, that I realize how limiting words can be, I have love for this man that words would never express
