We have thought about Fred Brubaker as he has gotten older wondering how he was doing. Then we read his obituary stating that he was 106 years old when he passed. He was a very kind hearted Christian man. We have not seen him since we moved away from Ossian in 1991. We knew Fred and Florence through the First Presbyterian Church in Ossian. We are certain that he and Florence are in heaven now .

with Christian love and sympathy to the family,
Ted & Sharyn Engelbrecht

Your mom & dad were friends of my folks (Ruth & Ray Johnston) through First Missionary Church. Florence was my Sunday School teacher in about ‘65 or ‘66. I attended a memorable Sunday School party at their home (my family lived on Muldoon Rd, not far away). My sympathies in the loss of your dad.
