Fred spent a lot of time travelling between the state of New Mexico and his east coast places in Philly and Hunterdon County. He made a lot of friends in many places. He loved meeting new people and having adventures with me, his wife of 32 years. I will miss him dearly, but will go on having adventures with him in my heart.
