Fred's life exemplified his strong faith and love for God, his family and friends. Fred never met a stranger and was always ready to help others. He was known by his outgoing personality, love of the outdoors, anything to do with the water (fishing, crabbing, boating), golfing, landscaping, fellowship with friends and family, reminiscing of the past and his love of food. He was also known for giving advice and his opinion, joking around and teasing. He will be fondly remembered and truly missed. The family is assured by God's promise that his body is restored and renewed and will be reunited again in Heaven.
