Our deepest condolances to Freddy's family at this sad time. As past owners of Rigg Mooney Monuments we first met Freddy in the cemetery in the '70's.
When we moved into our new home on a blustery January day in 1987 he came by with his little dog to check out our home. He often visited our shop for a visit when he retired.
A nice, kind and gentle man ...may he rest in peace.
Bruce and Dianne Mooney

So sorry for the passing of Garry, (Fred). Fred worked with my husband, Brian Pantusa with the City Of Niagara Falls. After Fred retired he would come over our house once and a while to see Brian. He was an interesting man & I know Brian respected him. So sorry for your loss and may Fred rest in peace. Brian & Toni Pantusa
