Dear Frances,

Such a privilege it has been to share so much time with one so committed to God and to Jesus Christ, family, his staff, country, and, yes, ever A&M!
We met in NACUFS over 35 years ago when Fred was head of the L&L (Legal and Legislation) Committee, where we were privileged to be welcomed by Fred and Emil Schmidt.
We shared rooms (at conferences) and ideas (mostly Fred’s) after Fred and Emil conspired with Frank Leathers to bring us to Huntsville at...

To the Dollar family: My condolences on the passing of Col. Dollar. He was a fine gentleman who touched the lives of many people in many walks of life. I can remember touring the A & M campus with Fred in the 1980s and was touched by his love for the foodservice industry and his care and concern for the campus community. I've talked with A & M directors since his retirement who told me how willing he always was to provide counsel to them. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOUR FAMILY AT THIS TIME.FRED AND BONNIE JEAN WERE 1ST COUSINS TO MY GRANDMOTHER AMANDA PARKER,I LIGHT THIS CANDLE IN MEMORY OF FRED,AND ALL OF OUR FAMILY MEMBERS HE WILL BE JOINING IN THE PRESENCE OF OUR LORD.

Dear Dollar Family,

Carl and I were so sorry to hear of your loss. We know a great burden has been lifted and a true blessing given to us all knowing that Bro. Dollar is with our Lord now and no longer suffering. We will forever be greatful for all the support he and your family gave to us, and for the sweet advice and recommendations made to our family. Your family will forever remain special to our family.

We love you and will continue to lift you up in prayer.

Dear Frances and Family: Our prayers and thoughts will always be there for Col. Dollar.I so enjoyed working for him for almost 20 years. We had great times and great challenges opening new facilities on campus. Our love goes to you and your family.

I'll miss Great Uncle Fred. I didn't know him very well growing up but I always respected the man Greatly. I'll always remember him coming up to Seth - My youngest at Gee Gee's Funeral and shaking Seth's hand and telling him that his Sunday School Class had been praying for Seth and it was an honor to meet him. He was a gentleman and gave so unselfishly.

Having had the privilege of meeting Col. Dollar once at the home of his sister Bonnie Jean Hardy (Gee-Gee), I know he loved his family very much. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

Warm Regards,

The Cooper family sends our love and prayers to all of you during this difficult time of loss. May God comfort you and strengthen you, and may your fond memories bring you joy. I will always fondly remember our families' Sunday lunches at the MSC!

Frances and Family,
Fred Dollar was one of the most influential people in both my personal and professional life. He always had time to help and assist his Collogues with any and every request. On several occasions Fred would travel and speak at seminars I conducted for students enrolled in Hotel Restaurant Management programs. These students came from Florida State University, Oklahoma State University, Johnson and Wales University, Sheffield Halam University in Sheffield, England...
