Great Memories go back to the 1960s and 1970s. Many great fishing trips, discussions about music, debates about many issues, and a great river rafting trip camping out in Colorado and Utah. Sorry we lost touch through the years, he was a good friend. Sympathies all family members especially his mother and sister who I remember fondly.

My deepest sympathies to Fred's family at this difficult time. I had the pleasure of knowing Fred through my friendship with Krystyna, his sister. I spent many wonderful afternoons at the family home on Kilbourn enjoying a meal with with Krystyna, Gregg, Arlene, Fred and Louie. I treasure those memories. Fred had a wonderful sense of humor and a quick smile. My heart goes out to Arlene, his widow. Please know that I am keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort in your memories. Your friend, Kathleen Mullaney (and Jack, too!)
