We are so sorry to hear about the passing of uncle Fred. I have very fond memories as a young teenager of the times spent with him and aunt Rhoda at their home. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends. We are thinking of you at this time, it seems like the closing of a great chapter.

Very sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. It has been an honor and a pleasure to be his neighbor and friend the past few years. I will miss his cheery nature and the fascinating stories he would tell during our visits.

I am so sorry for your loss. Fred was a wonderful man and is with Rhoda finally. He never missed a christmas card which made me get up and write a few. He will always be in my thoughts sitting on the hill at quail Roost and on the road in the forest. He shall surely be missed.

Condolence from Mike and Janet Resnik on November 3rd, 2015 7:39 pm

We were sadden to learn today of Fred’s passing. He and Rhoda meant a lot to us and our children. We will remember the thrill of the hunt, and the many hours he spent at our house rounding up hounds.

He was a good man, and, in his later life, an inspiration.
