Our deepest sympathy to Kim and family. I known and worked with Fred, and sometimes closely, for allot of years and could not have prayed for a better co-worker. I feel my life was blessed to have had the time we had together through good and bad times, i.e. when 9/11 happened we were on the dock. Now, as time goes by, he travels in my heart. Like an extended family, we were brothers at arms.

My family was shocked and deeply sad at the news of Fred's passing.
Fred and Kim have been our next door neighbors for over 26 years. My wife joked that they raised us as we moved in next door in our early 20's. Fred was always kind, generous and a great neighbor. I never did anything to my yard without asking his advice! In the summer he would knock on our door and have sweet corn or tomatoes or something Kim had baked to give us every week it seemed. We will miss him more than I can express.

Kim...so sorry to hear that Fred had passed. It is never easy to find the right words to express at a time like this. I have known Fred and you for years, and enjoyed being your co-worker. Fred always kept us laughing at times when we needed to laugh. I have missed you both since you left. Just know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. May all of your tomorrows be in God's safe keeping.. Sometimes life hurts so much it's difficult to pray. But during this time, please take comfort knowing that God knows what is in our hearts. Take Care and stay safe...my friend.
