I flew co-pilot for Fred many times during our time with American Airlines. What a wonderful pilot and gentleman. I just cannot say enough good things about the exceptional man.
Dear Marlene and family,
I was a '66 hire and flew often with Fred. It was always a pleasure to fly with a skilled aviator who was also a great guy. Many pleasant memories. May God be your pillar of strength during these trying times.
Fred and I were 59 hire classmates and last visited years back at reunions. He was a good friend and true gentleman.
I only met Fred a few times, but he was always gracious and kind. His legacy lives on in Jeff, a friend of mine now for almost 30 years. My thoughts go out to all his survivors.
Please accept my deepest condolences. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm sure his memory will live long in your thoughts and that will sustain you for the rest of your days.
Gayla Halbrecht and family
