Fred, and his cousin Rick, were both school chums of my brother and me way back in Kennedy School and all the way through MHS. We had some good childhood times and good memories. My condolences to Fred's family.

Jane, please accept our condolences in the loss of your captain.

Fred was a fine man, often opinionated, for which he had earned the right, weaving a good story with a cold beverage at one side and his faithful hound on the other.

The troubled waters of his loss will soon subside,
