Susan and family,
Rich and I only had good memories of Fred as we all grew up in the 40’s and 50’s. Always a gentleman and always smiling. He will be missed.

I know Debbie from working with her at SMH. Her father Fred was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer shortly before my husband was. So we all spent time together at FL Cancer Assoc during Dr visits & treatments. He was always chipper & had a good sense of humor about him. Like my husband they both appreciate their time on this earth with their family & caregivers.
At last his family can take comfort knowing that he is at peace and no longer struggling with this truly horrendous disease. He was a true warrior and gave it his all. I know he is up in heaven watching over his loved ones with a big smile on his face.🌷🌹🙏

We have known the Perrotta family since the early 1970's. Sue is my godmother and Fred is my brother Tony's godfather. My father and mother spent endless days/nights playing trouble and just spending time with them. I am saddened by the passing of Uncle Fred. I will always keep him and his family in my heart, thoughts and prayers especially during this difficult time. I love you all

I had the pleasure of getting to know Fred several months ago. He had the sweetest disposition always positive and upbeat and it was obvious he loved and adored his family. One thing I really admired about Fred was his faith and we had a lovely conversation together about our mutual beliefs. I only wish I had known him longer.
I will miss seeing your smiling face!
