I have so many great memories of being with both of your parents (my adopted grandparents as I used to refer to them) . Going down to the Elks was always a favorite of mine. Your Dad was my sponsor to join the Elks along with Mary, my sister-in-law. On the night we were going to be inducted your Dad insisted in picking us up. He showed up at my house all dressed up (so handsome), opening the doors for us (such a gentleman) and insisted we have a Scotch together. A very memorable night. After that night, your Mom always referred to your Dad as my “boyfriend.!” It was so darn cute. I think of your Mom often and now I think of the smile on her face when she saw your Dad after all these years apart. Their love is forever. Thinking of you all with heavy hearts, Love,Tom and Shay xoxo

What beautiful pictures to remember and honor a wonderful man, my Uncle Fred. There are several fond memories but my favorite are the ones my son James got to spend with him. I will hold those special moments close to my heart and be thankful for all his love, laughs and wisdom he has shared with us. You will be deeply missed, but we will meet again some day! RIP ❤️

Like everyone else’s feelings, Fred was loved by all who knew him. I used to clean his house for him. When he had a doctor appointment, I could get in done in a timely matter. If he was home, it took hours...Fred LOVED to “chat”. But, I would sit with him when he said, “take a break”, and we would talk. I miss those chats. Everyone here in SLF will miss him . He loved to dance with the ladies at Happy Hour, and the ladies will miss their dancing partner...I know I will. So Fred, you can dance in Heaven now with Joan. May you not Rest In Peace too long...you need to chat and dance. Love you and miss you💕
