Fred was a good man and true mentor to many of us younger guys who started our careers working with him at Pneumo. His supportive, positive, and upbeat demeanor made a big impact on how we should interact throughout our careers and lives. God speed Fred. Len Chaloux

Shelly and family, I am so sorry to hear of Fred's passing, I have missed seeing him going up to his wood working shop, and out in the yard. I will be praying for comfort at this difficult time. You have my deepest sympathy.
