My parents moved to Denver in 1955 as I was ready to go off to college. I studied cello with Fred the following three summers when I was in Denver. He was always so kind and helpful, and I have often thought about him since that time. He was really a wonderful teacher!

Fred was my friend and colleague in the Denver Symphony, and then the Colorado Symphony, for many years. He was the steady kind of friend you could count on.

In the early 1980s, when Fiddlers Green was nothing but a big lawn in the shape of an amphitheatre, the Denver Symphony was scheduled to rehearse and perform there. Rehearsal ended early because of a severe thunderstorm. Some percussion instruments and other gear got flooded.

The symphony rented Denver Coliseum, on very short notice, for the concert that evening. But -- after all of that rain -- my car was hopelessly stuck in the mud of the unpaved parking lot at Fiddlers Green. I had driven to rehearsal, and bassoonist John Wetherill was carpooling with me. We had no choice but to leave my car there until the following day.

Without hesitation, Fred and Margaret insisted that we ride with them to their house, where they loaned us a car.

I took lessons from Fred when I was in Junior and Senior High schools in Lakewood. It was always a pleasure. For a time, I also babysat his two young boys (babies) to help pay for my lessons. On one of his trips to Chicago, he brought back a great German cello that my parents bought from him. I still have this cello fifty years later. I am sorry to hear of his passing.

I took lessons from Fred after finishing my music performance degree. Fred set the bar high, but always within reach. He made me believe my goals were possible and gave me the strength to continue their pursuit. I think of his kindness when I play.
