We enjoyed getting together with you guys and I was very sorry I couldn’t make it to his visitation. I was laid low with bronchitis and fever. I was with you in spirit and wish you peace and comfort . I wonder who has the ru bber chicken now??

Our condolences to Freds family. Fred was always a very nice and considerate person and he is surely to be missed by his family and friends. The Class of 1951 missed him at our recent reunion and grieve the passing of one of our own.
Fred was a man with a kind heart and a loving friendship. We will miss him.
Hearing about Fred passing brought back lots of good memories. When I was 12 yrs old he caught me smoking and till this day it was our little secret. Every time he would see me his first question would be “are you still hiding those cigs”. Fred was a great man and will truly be missed.
