The first time I met Fred me and Emily were in the 5th grade and I came over to build a miniature house for a school project. Fred made it look amazing, even using real shingles! I remember being in McKenzie at the farm house while Fred told us scary stories of buildings there and then drove us by the buildings to scare us a little more! It was always an adventure to be with him! He had a special and unique bond with each child!

Together we share a legacy that will go on and on. Our grandsons will never forget "Big Daddy". And the stories they share of you will be remembered with great fondness and love. Thankyou for this gift, I will be eternally greatful. May you rest peacefully now. I love you.
