I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. May the God of all comfort sustain you as you await the promises found at John 5:28,29 and Rev. 21:4 where God promises to do away with all the things that cause us suffering and pain including death here on the earth forever. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort you family at this time. Lauraj

I am so sorry for your loss, Had some great memories of him from my younger years from monclova Gardens, He was so funny, didn't know if we should run and stay and talk when he gave you those looks. But a very kind man, he loved his girls, Rest in peace Fred and you are happy and free.

I am sadden to hear of Fred's passing, but thankful I had a chance to get to know him and Eileen while working at Otterbein. He was very patient and kind. We talked quite a bit about farming and Farmal H tractors. I know he will be at peace now.
