Uncle Fred: Hearing of your passing brought sadness to my heart. My memories of you were only from my childhood as we moved away from New York in 1958. Last time with you was in 1964. Although there were miles between us for all these many years, you were never forgotten. Many times my family tried to reach out to you but the doors were always closed, this also sadden my heart. My mother keep your memory available to me and my brothers so you were never forgotten. I find peace in your passing, for now I know my Mom will once again be near the brother she so missed. And now when the year 2020 has ended you and your brothers and sisters are once again FAMILY! Rest in Peace my Uncle I treasure the memories I have even though they are from long ago.

Marcia,
I was so sorry to hear of Fred passing. The term "handyman" hardly described Fred's many talents. He was more of a genius and I don't know of anything he couldn't fix. I will always remember Fred for his dry sense of humor and always brought a smile to my face during our association those many years. You are in my thoughts during your time of sorrow.
