You will be forever remembered. The Times we visited when I was younger with my mom and sisters you were always so welcoming and had such a positive outlook. I wish I could have spent more time with you talking about classic cars.

Fred was a great man. A godly man. From the first time I met him I knew he was a man to look up to. He was kind, patient, funny, an so many other great things. Fred has made a major impact on my life. I’ve always aspired to be the type of husband An now father that he was. He loved his wife an kids unconditionally. An it showed. I loved to sit on the couch an listen to Fred an shelma reminisce about their lives together. It was always hours of laughter an fun. I could say so many things about how great this man was. He welcomed me into the family with a hand shake an a smile. Leaving a permanent impact on my life. The live that he lived will always be a path that I chose to follow. I love miss you fred. I hope to walk with you again some day in your heavenly home.Read more

God called Fred home and I know he’s rejoicing and pain free and so happy now but I’m selfish. I miss you so much already. I want you here with us but I know you are in a place so amazing, that we can’t even imagine what it’s like. I love you Fred. I know you are watching over us and I had my beautiful baby girl. She has an amazing guardian angel. I will make sure she knows how amazing you were. I feel extremely blessed to have had you for an uncle. We love you so much.

I’m so sorry for this family’s loss of a good man. Fred was the best of the best. He was always pleasant to be around. He always made you feel welcome anytime you was with him. Anytime he’s name would come up in a conversation, they would say Fred is a good man. That speaks volumes about ones character. No one ever had an unkind word to say about him. I will miss him on this earth. But look for the day I will see him again. Rest in pace Fred. This is not goodbye just so long for a while.

I knew Fred from church. Listening to him testify and seeing how his kids love God, I know that he was truly a man of God.

Fred was one of a kind. One of the best , he was a humble, Godly, kind hearted, hardworking man. He was an amazing husband to my sister Shelma’, who he loved and adored so much, a wonderful dad and grandpa to all his children and grandchildren.. He loved all his family and friends. He was my brother n law but was like a second dad to me. He’s been in my life for 49 years and I’ve never heard him say a unkind word about anyone. Anyone who ever had the privilege to know him loved him. R.I..P Fred and tell mom and dad I love and miss them. It will not be the same without you. I love you and I will miss you but thank you Jesus you are rejoicing with the angels and have a new heavenly bod...y and aren’t suffering or in anymore pain. I hope to see you again one day. I promise to help take care of and watch over Shelma. I love youRead more
