Very sad that a good man was taken away from this world. You were a great guy and am glad that my Mom married you. I know that God will have a place for you in Heaven. God Bless you. We will miss you Fred.

I met Fred at the University of AK Fairbanks - such a gentleman. I hadn't seen him in years, and while living in Spenard, off Wisconsin St, found out he was my neighbor. Rest in Paradise, Fred, you lived an honorable life.

Betsy and family: So sorry to hear about your Dad. He was a well liked and respected man. We worked with him on many occasions. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of loss.

May you find comfort in knowing that he was my Aunt Letty's love of her life'. Only knew him for a little time but she was the happiest when they found each other and enjoyed their time dancing together. May he Rest In Peace! Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

I remember, very little, due to age of a Walatka living on Iris drive in Spenard. It was in the early 50s. We lived close by. My parents spoke of him kindly.
May God give his family comfort!

I worked for Fred in the late 70's. He was a good man and a wonderful Alaskan. He will be missed.

Sorry to hear about Fred. My mom and I visited him a couple months ago as she too is in the pioneer home. He was in good spirits and was always a good friend and neighbor in spenard. I remember doing a march of dimes raffle with him as a kid. He was a true Alaskan and will be always be in our hearts.

So sorry to hear of Fred's passing. He was one of a kind.
