A great partner to a young detective, a mentor in so many ways, a leader among men, and a righteous and compassionate man. Fred so loved May and their family, and I consider myself to have been a good friend of Fred and May. I have so many good memories of working with Fred at the P.D. and the FOP. I was so glad to be able to see and talk with Fred at the FOP a couple of years ago. That smile and twinkle in his eyes were still there and my heart took a leap when he recognized me and we talked for awhile. The world was a better place when Fred was with us. Rest in peace, my friend. Our thoughts and prayer are with you, May, and your family. Rose Mary and I loved Fred and he will be missed.
