Larry and I are so sorry for the passing of Fred. You were both such great grandparents. The younger picture of Fred looks just like Boo (David). The grandchildren will take many loving memories of their grandfather with them. "Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted" Matthew 5:4 With much love, Larry and Lou Murphy

Dear Vonna, Dave and Doug, So sorry to hear of Fred's passing. He was a very special person and I always enjoyed his company. I learned a LOT from Fred over the years, especially the first few years I was at Tokheim where he was my Mentor.

We were so fortunate to have had you as neighbors for so many years. Such fond memories you all gave me. Fritz finally told me I didn't have to put an 'N'on my forhead....he could tell Peg and me apart. We will miss him. Love, John and Nancy Austin
