My dad was one of the greatest fathers on the planet. I love him and will always love him threw out the rest of my life!

Fred was one of the finest men I ever knew. He donated many hours of labor to his church and worked countless hours in the food pantry at Gilkey. He was a pleasant person to be around. He is no doubt at home with his Lord now.
