"I learned so much from Fred . His life was a teacher. He left so many landmarks. Fred paved the road for those who desire to adventure life in it's fullest. What an honor to sit at the feet of one with so much wisdom and knowledge. I count it a blessing o of been his caretaker/housekeeper. Miss you Fred!!"

"Fred had a huge impact on my life without ever really knowing it. I was trying to get a job at McDonald's to no avail. I sent a resume directly to him in a scented, lipstick kissed envelope. I guess he read it because when I came for my interview he had hand written at the top of my resume, "this girl has guts, find her a job." I did not meet him personally for two more years. One day he walked into the class at Hamburger U where I was teaching restaurant managers how to read financial statements. He sat down in the front row for awhile and just listened. After class he told me I had a gift for education. I remained at McDonald's until after my sabbatical, but never forgot his words. I eventually went back to school, got the proper credentials and am now Chair of a Business Program at an Illinois University. In his own private way he mentored my entire life. I will miss him greatly!"
