Fred was an orthopedic surgeon in South Florida for 30 years.
After retiring from medicine, Fred and Joyce spent years traveling the world. They visited every continent and the furthest reaches of the globe, making friends and collecting art, photos, and memories.
Fred is survived by his wife of 62 years, Joyce; their children Victoria (Kenneth), Peter, and Jeffrey (Pamela); their grandchildren, Hannah, Sophi, Matthew, and Emma; and his niece Anneke.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; He guideth me in straight paths for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou hast anointed my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
