Dear Family: I've had the privilege of knowing Fred since the Fall of 1981 when I joined Big Foot Country Club. Over the years, we've played many rounds of golf together and each time we played, I very much enjoyed his friendship, stories and sense of humor. He will truly be missed!

My deepest sympathy. I loved playing golf with your father and Don McCay. The banter between Your Dad and Don was truly special. Fred and his wonderful sense of humor will be missed!

Dear Family, I’m so sorry to hear this sad news. I saw Fred at Sammy’s on Wednesday. We chatted and we were kidding around with each other as we always did. I’m so blessed to have known him. We played numerous rounds of golf at Big Foot Country Club and a couple of times in the Desert. He shared a common thing with my dad, both from Michigan and their birthdays were one day apart. He prepared a folder for me of all his programs from Michigan Football. I enjoyed reading them. I got a kick of his story on how he was the wrestling champ at U of M. He is now reunited with his wife June, son Jim and daughter Ruth. He can play golf everyday with his old golfing partner, Don McKay against George Briody and Charlie Eklund. Fred, you will be missed.
