I knew Fred as a colleague and friend during our teaching years at Wilson High School. This warm hearted, humble man of genuine compassion was not only a gifted teacher; he was also an engaging and articulate man of the world. His gentle candor and good humor made him welcome at everyone's table. As an amiable friend, a creative writer, and deep thinker, he will be missed. Many years ago, before leaving for a study trip to Spain, shouldering his leather Air Force jacket, and khaki backpack heavy with books, he told me "It's all going too fast...I have to go." And so it is. Raise a glass and a prayer to Fred.

Fred was my teacher when I was at Rosemont school while I was going through a very hard time in my childhood. He was one of a handful of teachers who made an impact on my life and my memories. I will hold him in my memory forever. It was just by chance that Matt and my brother had been friends for many years (and still are).

My heart is with the entire Staab family. Blessings to you.
