Not sure what to say?

Steve, I was sorry to read of your fathers passing. You and your family will be in my prayers.
Steve Hoehne

I have known Fred as a father-in-law and a friend for 44 years. Pat and I have great memories of times together on vacations and many visits and activities. I gave a lot of my time on work he needed done and that was easy to do because I called him a friend and did not attach strings to what I did. And pat, I, and the kids enjoyed the two years you and mother lived with us

Sorry to hear about your dad.
Tommy O'Brien

For an amazing man that touched the lives of many. You will always be loved and never forgotten.

I am so thankful for the love Granddad shared with his great-grandchildren, and his regular presence in our lives. Our motorcycle convoys that spanned three generations; seeing him pull up in his "Mr. Fred" convertibles; and lighting up the room with his smile under his flat brimmed hat are a few of the memories we cherish. God bless the Darche family as we celebrate Granddad's life.

We are so sorry for your loss. Prayers for all of whom were touched by his life.

So sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed taking care of him @ Bickford House. He was always so appreciative.
