Fred was the first buddy I had when i moved to Florida from Ohio in 1957.  I was lonely and homesick first time I was off the farm.  Fred introduced himself to me over on Kelley Dr where we both lived, He cheered up a lonely kid, I'll never forget that.  We stay good friends all through high school.  I loved that guy, best wishes to his family.

Fred was a great team builder, not only on the football field but in life.

We shared home room in Northeast, where we laughed alot. He will be missed by all who knew him.

God Bless you my friend.

Fred was an outstanding football and baseball  player! I remember him runnig down and tackling a very fast runner during the game with Palmeto High School. He stopped the guy from scoring. I got to watch him play baseball and he always gave 100 % when he played. He was one of the fastest guys on the baseball team and I was the slowest. May his soul rest in peace he was one of the good guys.

Don't know how I missed this if I did almost a year ago?  Doesn't matter I am deeply saddened to read it again..  Fred was my running back buddy, my blocking buddy and my teammate  on the football team.  Fred was a power house of a guy.  Fred was also my good friend and I miss him.  R.I.P. my brother.
