Fred was a valued customer at Powell's Truck & Equipment where I had the pleasure of meeting him over 25 years ago. I worked in the Parts department and we helped him get his parts so he could get his truck going again . I always enjoyed waiting on Fred because no matter how big a problem he had he was always smiling and joking around. To his family I give my deepest condolences. Fred was one of a kind Man and I know he will be missed. The world would be a better place if more people were like Fred.🙏
