was at the heart of irish health and fitness today, the atlantic club, and spoke with Mr. Pataglia, a Squan legend..He told me of Fred's passing and I told him he married my cousin sheila..Fred was big with the family in the early 1970s, brought energy to the family picnics and of course a keg with tap, a huge hit with all the grown ups. Getting premium parking.was BIG during the hot summer days and my dad sure enjoyed throwing back a few with Uncle Fred before the drive back to Freehold.. TC and God Speed....

Your Dad was the reason for so many wonderful memories of my many summers in Manasquan. He was always friendly and nice to myself and family/friends. Like so many others, we spent many times in Leggetts celebrating an event, holiday, friends gathering to catch up, charity events and of course just hanging out. Thanks Freddie for wonderful memories in Manasquan and the friendly chats, teasing and just being you.
