Fred was like a Brother to me. Daryle Decker (Deceased) and I were at a Bar Patio and that's how we met him. It started to get chilly one night so this nice man I met over 20+ yrs ago, loaned me his sweater/jacket. I returned it back to him the next day and said, "Thank you. You are a very nice man." He said, "You're very welcome. At least I know how to treat a nice, good looking woman." (lol) He had the hots for me too...lol

So that's how we all got to know one another and became one big family. He had also lived with us many years ago. I also threw a surprise '16th' Birthday party for his Daughter, Christine Picco.

Chrissie, I am so sorry for your loss hun. Please get in touch with me.

Dear Christine,
I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad.
Freddy and I grew up together and I have many fond memories of our childhoods. Our mutual love of dogs, riding our bikes, playing in the driveway with neighborhood kids etc. Fred planted my garden for me and it is beautiful.
Freddy was always so kind , generous and sweet. God Bless him. I am sure he is at peace now in heaven .
Love Janet

My heartfelt condolences to you and Taylor on the loss of your dad.

I have many fond memories of Fred growing up. Our trips to the cottage especially. A funny story... Fred was 13 years older than me so when I was 7, he was 20. We were on the beach at the cottage in Beaverton and Fred was wearing mirrored sunglasses. I was making faces at him because I thought since I couldn't see his eyes, he couldn't see me. He picked me up and threw me in the lake!

May your memories bring you comfort.

Michelle and family

Dear Christine
So sorry to hear of your Dad my 1st cousin Freddy as I always called him.
I spend much of my childhood with Aunt Blanche and Uncle Dave and had many great memories hanging with Freddy .
He later moved around the corner from me and would see him often. We would chat and he always laughed about life and never had a cross word to say about anyone.
I later moved up North and he did come visit and did some fishing.
He was a gentle sweet soul.
Freddy will be missed.
Condolences from the Picco girls.
Maureen Eileen Susie and Jacqui.

Dear Christine,
I am so sorry for your loss of your Dad. Freddy was my godfather and also served as my big brother growing up. I absolutely adored Fred and loved spending as much time as I could with both him and your Mom when I was young. He was so special to me. Although I know there are few words that can ease your pain during this time, this quote provided some comfort for me.

“And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched… for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much.”

Freddy was truly loved.
My sincerest condolences.

Fred introduced me to my wife Gail, and he married Gail's sister in 1973. Fred later became my best man and my brother in law. Thanks for the memories Fred.
