He was born on January 2, 1941 in New Haven, CT to the late Alfred and Katherine (Barnett) Raban.  He grew up in Hamden, CT and raised his family in Nashua before moving to Brookfield in 2010.

While in Nashua, he was an active member of the VFW and Nashua Fish and Game Association.  Fred loved being outdoors and he spent many happy hours fishing in the stream on his Brookfield property.

Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry about your loss. You were so generous when you welcomed me into your home. Fred had a special wit, he was always ready with a dry joke, and he was challenging in a good way. You seemed so very happy. Thinking of you.

Fred was my best friend for 50 plus years. We did a lot together and always had fun but also we respected each other. I will miss his friendship, wit and humor.
He was a good guy.
Rest in peace, Fred.

I got to know Fred as an engaging resident at Mt. View. He was bright, interesting, and interested in what was going on around him. I liked checking in to see what he was painting or reading. Miss going to Mt. View and miss chatting with him. He certainly loved his family and appreciated the staff.

I served with Fred in the Army Reserves for a number of years, and we occasionally traveled together from Nashua to Ft. Devens.
I considered Fred to be a friend as well as a colleague. He was a credit to the Reserve Unit we belonged
He was a good man, and I am very sad to hear of his passing.
My sincerest condolences to his family!

So sorry to hear of Fred's passing . I worked with him when he and I were employed as bailiffs at Nashua District Court . He was a great person to work with , very kind and with a dry sense of humor, that was well needed . Wonderful to be around and made my time there enjoyable . Great memories from 2000-2006 !
