Fred & Bennie lived a block away here in Del Webb. I bought some old coins from him several years ago. Susie and I always chuckled watching Big Fred walking probably the smallest dog you could imagine. He was always a polite gentleman. Sincere condolences to his surviving family.
Farwell friend and neighbor. Bowling brought us together when we were young. We moved to Huntley and continued to enjoy each other's company. Rest in peace.
