Whenever I went apple or blueberry picking at the family orchard just down Miller (Khourie) Road, Fred would be there "minding the store" , wearing his straw hat and a huge welcoming smile! He always had positive remarks that made customers feel good ! What a wonderful, long life he had.! I will miss him!.

My love of baseball and the Red Sox was due to my gramps. I remember going to gram and gramps house and sitting watching the Red Sox as a very young child. Last year I sat and watched one of the playoff games with gramps.
A memory I will always cherish amongst many .
To all that knew gramps I grieve with you , for he was a wonderful man.

BOB AND FAMILY,
I AM SO SORRY TO LEARN OF THE PASSING OF YOUR FATHER, I HAVE FOND MEMORIES OF THE MANY CONVERSATIONS WE HAD TOGETHER DURING THE 50 YEARS THAT I KNEW HIM.
I STILL CAN PICTURE HIM WORKING IN THE FIELDS AND CUTTING THE GRASS SITTING ON HIS TRACTOR.
YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HAVE MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY MAY HE REST IN PEACE.
