Thinking of your family. Neighbors. HARRY & JILL BARBER

So sorry to hear this Fred and I use to fish together plus he was my neighbor we got into making dune buggys yrs ago he knew Volkswagen motors like the back of his hand he was good at working them RIP Fred

I’m really going to miss this man. Not only was he my uncle he was my friend, I loved spending time with him when he came to West Virginia we also talked on the phone to each other. He loved camping, I will treasure the fond memories of him and my dad ( his best friend) he called him. It was heart breaking when I heard the news of his passing.

Fred and my grandfather was friends forever. When I was younger I called him guitar Fred, we also went to the driving range a few times together. Heaven gained a amazing angel.
