My heart is breaking for Fred. I will miss our phone calls and laughter. When we were young I loved to be a pest to him. He always asked
“ What ya doin Dewey”. Rest In Peace Fred. Heaven just received another angel. Amen

Forever your loving wife.

I love you Dad, I love you son! Those were the last words we exchanged the night before my Father went to be with the Lord. And he expressed those same thoughts to others as well that night. I feel blessed that I got to hear him say that. These past couple of year's have been the best of my life, because Dad and I talked. I got to know him as a Father, Husband to Gwen, and through all of that, he was the best man I have ever known. I miss him dearly!!! But because of his faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, we will talk again in Heaven. Love you Dad

Thru the years you were always my little brother. Oh the memories we shared.
We would play golf, of course he would always
beat me. We had such good times. I can see
his face as we would look at each other &
start laughing. One big memory was when
Fred came home from basic training in the
Air Force. I could not believe my eyes as in
6 weeks he went from a young boy to a
man. Fred had a deep love of family & his

He was a loving father when he didnt have to be. I mean it he really didnt have to be. My father was still in my life and I saw him often, but Fred came in and started taking my mom out on dates. He took me right along with them and included me. I remember early on after they married and we moved in at his house in Jupiter, FL the town I now have come to proudly call home. He stepped up and took part in raising me with discipline and love. Somedays felt more harsh with discipline, but standing here as a grown man I see what he was doing all along. I remember good days; wonderful days of him taking me golfing with him and he let me drive the golf cart. I remember fishing at local ponds close to his house; my first catch was my ear. I remember going with him to clogging events a form of dancing he was so fond of he got me involved in the junior cloggers though I wasnt as good it was a fun memory. I didn't even realize it, but all this time he has been playing a part in making me the man I am today.

Gwen, Adam and Adrian, we are thinking of you and are so sorry for your loss.
We only had the opportunity to visit with Fred a few times but it was easy to see that he was a good man who was devoted to his family.
I remember on our last visit, we had a long discussion about "how to make the best crabcakes". We agreed that oatmeal was better than bread crumbs for mixing with crab meat. (Very important information) I am sure Gwen will remember this discussion.
We send our love to Fred's family.
