Fred and memaw (ann) were always super involved with the Bexar County Republican party. And they would throw car shows as a fundraiser. Fred was the kind of person tat he knew he had a cool car. so he would park his vette, leave a binder of info on the hood and walk around to see all the other cars. well one year I picked up that binder and I presented it to everyone that walked up to it.
We won 1st place that year.

- I never had a grandfather figure in my life, dispite having two other grandpas. Fred stepped up and I couldn't be more greatful to God for putting Fred in my life. Im even more greatful that My Step son Christian Got the opportunity to meet him.

There is truly too many memories, I could write a series of books.
However I will never forget how loving and accepting Fred was when I was adopted. Memaw (ann) and Fred at the time went to the same church as us. I was about 3 years old. and Fred would carry me around. God forbid he ever tried to put me down.

Dearest Fred,
I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you and then I realized....you spent the rest of your life with me.
I smile because I know you loved me till the day you went away
And will keep loving me...til the day we're together again,
I love you,
Ann

Can’t believe he is gone, but thank god for him over the 50 years I knew him as his sister-in-law. Last year, at John’s funeral, Fred spoke and said he thought he could of been a better brother to John; however, I know Fred was always there (with Ann, his better half) when his family and children needed him most, steadfast, true and loyal. You are forever in our hearts and in the Lord’s hands.

I had the great fortune of knowing Fred through his dedicated service to the Pembroke Estates community. Fred gave selflessly of his time and energy to improve the community’s quality of life and never failed to engage in our community when he thought his expertise was needed. He was a fearless advocate for the involvement of the community members in our association and strong believer in our nation and the Constitution. Fred and I shared the experience of being Vietnam veterans, with Fred often joking that as a combat engineer, his job had been to blow things up, not improve them as his service to our community mandated. I shall sorely miss his direct demeanor and pointed engagement on issues related to our community, as well as his expert input and ready wit in our association exchanges. Donna and I extend our sincerest condolences to Ann and the Bible family. Fred’s was truly a life well lived.

We have lived across the street from the Bible’s for years. Our favorite memories are when the Bible’s start hanging their Christmas lights. We love watching the production progress each day with more and more entertainment.
