Terry, I’m so sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. There are no words of comfort I can give you. Only know he touched so many lives including mine. I hope you have comfort in knowing that he was loved!

Hello Terri...

It unbelievable that Fred has been taken so soon. As one of many members of the Platte Valley Corvette Club, I remember all the goofy antics you, Fred and all the others of the club did over many many years, along with the conventions we all attended. Be assured that once this virus stuff all clears up, we'll all get together to raise a glass to Fred.
