Not sure what to say?

A great man with great conviction. A true Patriot and Christian man. He will be missed, rest easy my Freedom Committee friend

A true Patriot and Christian man. You will be missed my old Freedom Committee friend.

It was a privilege to know Fred, if only for a short time. Such a full life with focus on God, community, and country is so inspiring. We were grateful to have him as a tutor in Friendly Center's afterschool program a few years back. He had much to share with the children. Sending my condolences.

Fred and I first met in line to register our children at Mark Keppel School..and working together at St Marks in Sunday School. The last Sweet Talk I had with Fred was the week he went home to his loved was so uplifting as were all the years in between

Mr Chairman:

Amazing great man. Interesting about his auto re-enroll at Stanford after service.
So sorry for your loss.
God Bless.

Mr. Chairman, he was an amazing man who served our country. I am so sorry for your loss.

Fred was not only an inspiration, but also a true gentleman. He was humble and so very accomplished. I had no idea about his service record, but was not surprised when I read about it. As his son Fred said, he truly was a man, ordinary and extraordinary at the same time. Not many people can be said to fall into that category; Fred definitely did. The world is diminished by his passing.

Beautifully written thank you for sharing so very much.

praying for the family

God certainly knows Fred Sr. and my life was made better because of the friendship we shared.

Fred and Mignon, Michael and I are terribly saddened to learn of the passing of your Dad. Your father's dedication to his service to our Country is extraordinary. Please accept our most sincere condolences for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers.
