To all those who knew and loved my "Uncle" Fred...
Though he and my Aunt Bee where not married I did consider him my uncle. I am grateful for how good he was to her and our family, especially my grandmother in her final years. Fred was the epitome of INDEPENDENCE and self reliance. He offered the best and expected the best. He was a man of his words and actions. He could be a tough, crusty guy but I knew inside resided a heart of gold. I was grateful for our visit back in May and am glad I got to kiss him good-bye the last time I saw him. I hold you all in prayer! My mom and I will be to glad to celebrate his life with you at his memorial service.

Fred and my late husband, John were friends and Bea and I were friends. I knew them both and enjoyed their being in our community. My condolences to the family at this time of loss.

We was in Myrtle Beach and didn't get back til the 17th. Are stunned by this news of Fred's passing. Being next door has been a pleasure for us, seeing Fred run around in his little tractor and sporting his really nice cars that he loved. (even for their dogs) ha Fred will be missed for sure. We had some nice times together. We will be here for Bea when she needs us. He was a man that was neat, considerate, giving and fun. That is how he will be remembered by us. Prayers go out to his family and friends.

Fred was a classmate at Clayton High School and we served together in the US Army at Camp Chaffee, Ark. Fred was good company and friend. Just the other day I came across a photo of Fred in the Teepee Lounge at the Princess Hotel in Daytona Beach in the mid 50's. He was , as usual, surrounded by his friends. God Bless you ... ARBO
