Not sure what to say?

This Great Man has been in our family for over 35 years.
He has also help with so many things. I miss see him for some dinners, that was supposed meetings about cases.(He HAD GOOD JOKES). Gog bless his family for sticking bye him,when he needed to be @ home resting ,but he was out helping other people.He will never be forgotten in our household.The Robinson & Day Family of Gary Indiana.

The Work's family have my deepest sympathy. Judge Work had a vision and a love to help all people. I speak for those he served that have passed on, or don't have the Internet to express a kind word for a wonderfull person and the Work's family.

Deepest sympathy to the family. I was in the freshman class at Fisk with Judge Work's wife Beverly and remember them both well. Even then, he stood out above the crowd and am not surprised at his illustrious career.

To the family of Frederick T. Work, Sr.:

It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of a great attorney, a great man and a good friend. I had the pleasure and honor of knowing Fred all of my twenty seven years to date service with the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Indiana.

To the family of Fredrick T. Work, Sr.

There was never a time when I didn't hear the name of Atty. Work in a positive light. He was truly a beacon and strong tower in Gary. He was a truly one of God's servant. He will be missed but his legacy lives on.

My prayers are with the family.

Having a daughter attending Vanderbilt Law school now, I am thankful to Atty Fred T. Work for paving the way. To his family, you have our deepest sympathy and we pray for God's mercy and strength.

Atty Frederick T. Work will be dearly missed by Atty Wardell Hampton Jr. & Family. He was a man full of joy, love, strength and wisdom that I admired in him when I groing up. I ask the Lord to help you all through this time of sorrow in the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. God Bless You and Keep You All In His Perfect Peace And Strength Through These Trying Time.
Sincerely, LaQuita Hampton-Branch

God Bless the Work family at this time as the judge will be remembered for a long time.

I know my dad (Ray Ostrowski) was waiting with open arms for the hug from one of his best friends.

We all had such a great time working in Gary in the 60's & 70's. What a great group of friends and community back then.
