In addition to what I wrote yesterday, I believe I knew Alan Wayne who lived in the same apt. complex as Fred. If it is the same Alan, he was married to Joanne at the time and was in the reserves. The four of us often double dated going into NYC to the ballet, opera, dinners, etc. If you read this Alan, feel free to email me, maybe you remember me. We all loved Fred.

My sincerest sympathies to the Arndt family. I knew Fred very well '65-'67 when I worked in the AA flight office. We "went together" for a year and a half, we even were engaged for a short time. I loved his folks, spent much time with them and Fred (great memories of a fun Tanglewood outing). Think I met Lorie once. Fred & I were in contact in '85 for a short time. I had hoped to see him one more time but that was not to be. I truly did care for him. He really was the LOML.

To the family, I only learned this morning (December 16) of Fred's passing after battling this horrible disease for several years. Please accept my sincerest condolences. He was a neighbor in Port Washington who became a good friend with whom I shared countless laughs, good times, and observations over the years as we both worked in the airline business. He had a great career as both a commercial and miliary pilot. A wonderful guy with a big heart,and a big sense of humor.
