I'll remember Fred for his leadership and commitment to quality care of persons being served by community centers in Texas. He was friend and mentor to many of the people he worked with around the state. Even though a CPA by training he was always ready to talk about his farm and going to baseball games.

Fred was a fine man who was both a friend and mentor to me for many years. Even after he retired, I enjoyed visiting with him at the farm. He was always positive and upbeat and I will miss him. My condolences.

Marlene, We are so sorry for your loss. We really enjoyed getting to know Fred and he was always very cheerful and helpful neighbor. We are disappointed that we did not have the chance to know you two prior to buying the Thrall property. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you--our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss Marlene. He made me laugh with his jokes when he worked at the Council. I did enjoy seeing him from time to time when he dropped by the office in the last couple of years. If there is anything I can do for you I am here.
