Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort. We may not have seen Fred often, but he always, always, made us smile and laugh. Sincerely

To the family of Fred, we are truly sorry for your loss. We ran Vic's Restaurant in MONTVILLE where Fred was a good customer and friend. Although we haven't seen him in years I still remember his smile and great sense of humor. RIP Fred.

Pam and family, we are so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. Fred was always talking about the joy of retiring and heading to NY w/Pam. He was proud to be a grandfather and loved his grandson. I have missed Fred and is humor and robust laugh. He will truly be missed. God Bless ~ Teresa, Rob Schacht

I am sorry for your loss, I will always remember Fred as a funny guy. He first introduced himself to me as "DERF", Fred spelt backwards :)
Prayers go out to all family members, especially to my nephew Robert Harrison Avery. xo

I was six when our parents, Kay & Fred Avery, adopted Fred. He arrived at our house on Old Colchester Road on New Year's Eve and he died on New Year's Day. I'm happy he was my brother and that our paths crossed.
My brother, Fred loved the outdoors. He loved his guns & hunting with our Dad, cousin Dave Branche & Bob Saunders.
Fred loved camping, fishing, walking in the woods, working around the yard, chopping and stacking wood, riding his ATV, and plowing snow (just kidding).
I always called Fred the Mayor of Montville because everyone in town knew him. And he had so many lifelong friends: his first and closest friend, Ed Andrews, Jimmy Kernozek, his work buddy & sidekick Melvin, Eddie& Keith Bragdon, Pete Andrews, Jimmy Scovish, John Scovish, and his newer friends, Lincoln “Linc” and Chet, I met for the first time right before he died.
Fred loved working for the Montville Public Works Department. He loved all the guys in the shop. The guys were really great to visit and call him on the phone to check on him while he was sick.
You might not know that Fred loved Jackie Gleason aka Ralph Cramden (from The Honeymooners), The Three Stooges, and Ray Romano's show, “Everyone loves Raymond”. He had a good sense of humor and he always made me laugh.
He had a very generous nature and a heart of gold. He'd give you the shirt off his back.
He met Pam Bonnano, the love of his life, at the Montville Town Hall, and they were together for over 14 years. They had plans to build on their property located in upstate New York and to enjoy their retirement years together.
I admired his courage as he fought lung cancer. He endured terrible pain and radiation & chemo treatments without complaining.
Fred – I'm sure going to miss you. Love you, your sister Victoria
