We remember seeing Fred as he attended to Lee’s gardens and his always green grass. He has a true green thumb and there were never any weeds. The gardens were beautiful and a joy for the community. We shall miss seeing Fred and Lee on their walks still holding hands. We extend our sincere sympathies to Lee and her family. Peter and Kathleen Caldera, Tom and Stephanie Greene, John and Barbara Greene, Michael Greene, Sabina and Bob Troy, and Maureen and Ed Martin.

Fred, Brian to many of us, joined his dad’s firm as a young lawyer but he was his own man who set his own course and the course was always true. He navigated the competitive and sometimes stormy worlds of law and sailing honorably with dignity, grace, and humble humor. Both are poorer for his loss. Proud to call him colleague; prouder still to call him friend. Fair winds and fair tides on your heavenly journey, my friend. We wish you Godspeed. Thom and Maureen (Linehan) McNulty

Brian was my dad’s lawyer, our family business lawyer and my lawyer and yet he was so much more. His guidance was always there. He was a true friend. His family is in my prayers. I am very sad He is not here to call, to talk with, to get advice, but I am joyful he is with our Lord and he knows no pain only Joy.
