    Dan and I want to extend our Deepest and most sincere sympathy to Fred’s family. Fred has been a very good friend of ours for many years. We are going to miss camping with him, the many car shows that we attended together. And the get together at his house on Weds. nights for pie and coffee.Fred was a great person and loved all his family. And he loved his beloved Buddy and Teddy they were his best friends. He was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to whomever needed it. He went way up and beyond to satisfy people. And he enjoyed his antique car and truck (Fred’s Grocery Geter). He has no more heartache and pain. And he is with his best friend and faithful companion Teddy. We are going to miss you dearly dear friend. May you Rest in Peace
