Fred was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1973. His service to Jehovah was the most important thing in his life. He always had a sincere desire to help people. One way that he did this was by sharing Bible truths in the ministry. There are many hearts that he touched and many hearts that touched him. He will truly be missed and we will treasure fond memories of him.

My most sincere condolences, thoughts & prayers to the family. So sorry for your loss. Fred was a very kind man and always so helpful. He will be sorely missed. I am so grateful I had the privilege of working with him and my brother, Ronnie, on dad's house not very long ago. He made me laugh a time or two during that project. Rest in peace, Fred!
