I was Jett and Ginger’s Nanny for over 6 years, and I will always remember how Fred and Lou would take the kids outdoors and have a marvelous time! Fred cared so deeply about his grandkids, how they were raised, what they were learning. He seemed to have that ‘young attitude’, but with a firm guiding hand. I am sure he will be missed greatly. My condolences to Lou and whole Moultrie family. Love, Nanny Julie

My earliest memories of Fred were from when he and my dad ran the summer rec program in the late 60's, early 70's . Not much later, I remember Fred showing up at our house on his motorcycle, asking to talk to dad. The two of them would do go onto the deck, put their feet in the pool, have a beer and talk. I always wanted to go out there and find out what they were talking about, but my mom wouldn't let me. Fred was dad's best friend. Their friendship was full of respect, laughter, and love. After dad passed, whenever I would see Fred we would hug and I would always start crying, knowing that this was dad's best friend I was hugging. I loved Fred's smile. Finding out about his passing was like losing dad all over again. So very painful. I know that dad was waiting to greet him, beer in hand, arm around his shoulder, both smiling and happy to be together again. Much love to your family....
