Freddie and I were great friends and I spent many nights at his home. His mother and sister Were always kind to me. We left immediately after high school graduation and drove all night to Daytona Beach in my 57 Chevrolet . Freddie was always my co pilot- he lived with myself and Dusty Cummings for a while in Knoxville _ we had a royal time. I never met Fred’s daughter but just know this, I loved your daddy like a brother and it’s very hard to know my great friend has passed. Knowing how big his heart was, I’m confident he’s with the Lord. Goodlettsville was a special place growing up and Freddie was one of a kind❤️❤️

Dear Hardcastle Family:

Your loved one left his mark on the world by the way he lived and the difference he made in the lives he touched. I met Fred many years ago in Sumner County Tax Assessor case. A few years later, his brother Eddie and Rose became my good friends and neighbors.

Be comforted with the knowledge that your loved one is now resting in the presence of our Lord and rejoicing in his heavenly home.

I am so sorry for your great loss!

Just learned of Fred's passing & I'd like for the family to know that I am praying for peace & comfort for all of you. No, I was never blessed to meet him in person, yet I'm sure that I will see him in heaven. Fred was a member of one of the Christian/Inspirational groups that I founded & administer.

Whenever I must say goodbye to one I've treasured, I take comfort in this. Because of the promise of eternal life, we'll all be reunited again one day.
