Fred was such a sweet man. The one thing I remember when we worked together, he ate the same lunch everyday: a sandwich, with 10 Pringles potato chips and sweet tea. The only time he went off of his daily routine was when there was a special occasion and he was given enough time to plan ahead.

I ran into him occasionally many, many years after I left POMFLANT and he was always so happy to see me! Those occasions were spent catching up on who's doing what and where everyone is now.

I'll always have very fond memories of Fred. Peace and blessings to his family.

Fred was my friend for over 60 years after we met at Pomflant. He came to my yard sales and sometimes we would have a meal together. After I moved he would meet us for our pizza parties when I visited Goose Creek. We talked every week and I will miss him a lot. I pray for those who loved him like I did.

Fred was a good friend to my whole family. I wish I could bring my mother Tina down for the viewing but she isn't able to travel anymore. He always bought cookbooks for me at Goodwill and I made him cookies and cakes. He bought about 12 little purses when my granddaughter was 3 and we all got a good laugh when she tried to carry them all at once. He will be missed.
