Faye, Ted, Angie, Nancy & Doug – As you all know, I considered Fred and all of you true family and best friends. Fred was one of the nicest guys I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a friend to. In all the younger years back, he treated me like family and included me in so many fun shenanigans. I’m recalling EAA Fly-Ins at Oshkosh, fishing in Lac La Ronge in Saskatchewan, wining & dining with Chuck Yeager, sitting front row at the KC Kings games, going to Chiefs & Royals games, encouraging and teaching me to be a better pilot, flying to Boulder to give Ted quarters for the laundromat, all the lunches with Howard and his 2 headed nickel, QB hanger gatherings, jazz concerts and playing the bass guitar, family BBQ’s and any holiday I was in town for and not in St Louis. Fred should have written a book as God Broke The Mold when he made Fred. You left the best legacy of all – a great family. Thanks for the memories. Love ya buddy. Miss ya, xoxo John & Janice
To Fred’s family; I am so sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. I worked with Fred in the late 80’s and 90’s as a regional manager for Masoneilan. I spent most of my career as an engineer and was always glad to hear from Fred, as he was a perfect gentleman and fun to be around. Fred also gave me an opportunity to fly his plane (in a storm), which is the only time I have been a pilot. We also drove through a tornado zone in Wichita on another occasion, both events that I will never forget. I retired from Masoneilan on 08/2021 after 45 years of service. I came across his obit quite by accident and felt compelled to write even though his death was nearly 2 years ago. My deepest sympathy to your entire family.
