Mom, Daddy @ ME ... Just one of many beautiful places we have traveled together JULY 2014 Pompino Beach, Florida

I only had the honor to meet Fred twice, through his Oregon cousin, Tonie Tollen, as I was exploring plans to retire to nearby Aiken SC.

Such a quality gentlemen, who, with his wife Pauline, showed me what southern hospitality was all about on my first and second trips to the south. I think he is one of the reasons I knew there was some of the "south" in my bones.

I had hoped for many more such visits once I had moved, but it is not to be. However, I know we will meet again when I too take my final rest and retirement in the truly promised land.

My deepest condolences to his wife and daughter. A singular larger than life gentleman sure to be sorely missed by all who knew him.

McDuffie County has suffered a great loss. Fred was such a fine man in so many ways. He loved and respected his family and friends. He loved and respected the land. He has a special gift for the land. He understood land. He was a good steward of the land - whether it was the farm that he and his wonderful wife, Pauline, farmed - or other farms and lands. Through his work in the Dept. of Agriculture - and through his service on local agricultural committees - he helped many people improve their farms.
He loved cattle farming, hay farming and tree farming.
He loved to travel out West and visit other farms.
On a more personal level, he and Pauline have been two of the most supportive landowners Belle Meade Hunt ever had. Through that he and I became great friends.
We had a mutual respect based on the love and respect we shared for the land, the countryside - what we call "God's Most Wondrous Cathedral."
Fred loved to deer hunt. And he often invited a friend over to hunt with him. On the last Wednesday of deer season in January 2016, he asked me to coyote hunt through his farm, as he was having his friend, John Hathaway, over to hunt with him.
We hunted that way and as luck would have it, we ran a coyote right by Fred and John sitting in their two deer stands. He called me that evening to thank me and tell me how much fun it was for them to see the hounds running that coyote. Funny the things we keep - the things we hold dear. I still have that message saved on my phone.

Fred had guts. He fought cancer for many years - toughed it out through many treatment regimens.
He beat cancer for lots longer than most would have.
God Bless You Fred!
