    I first met Fred at the opening of his show at the Arts Company in the spring of 2016. I found his work engaging. In the summer of 2017 I was fortunate to attend a printing workshop at his house that I will never forget. Thank you Fred and Pat for that experience. God Speed gentle soul.

    Fred, we will miss you. You had a great military career and you were an inspiration to us all. We had a lot of fun playing music at Kathy’s.

    A great balance of intelligence, humor, and humility. Numberous talents physically and mentally. The interesting twist is the spiritual pursuit Fred always put first. Grateful to have been his friend and shared many hours of discussion, listening to music, and relating to the world.

    My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one Fred. When we lose a loved one, we experience overwhelming sadness. To help with our sorrow, our Heavenly Father has given us promises in His word the Bible that provide comfort and hope. One promise is in Revelation 21:4 which says “death will be no more” and another promise is in Acts 24:15 which says “there is going to be a resurrection”. When these promises are fulfilled, we have the hope of never being separated from our loved one again. Titus 1:2 says that God “cannot lie” so we can be sure this will happen. Other heartwarming promises from God can be found on
