Fred was always a delight to speak to and the best neighbor you could ask for. Fred had so many stories to share. He often made sure my garbage was out and bought my girls Christmas gifts. He is loved and missed. Seth Ikerd and family

Fred is one of the most delightful, kind, intelligent, witty and positive people I have ever known. I'm delighted that Fred became my brother-in-law, I'm so glad that we added him to the family circle. Fred made everyone he knew a little better person, just by being himself. We will just have to learn to love him in a little different way now.
