Fred was sure a well liked person and always had time to stop and talk. Immediately my thoughts returned to the first time we met, at The Hot Rod Nats. in Medina and what a good time we had . I loved to hear him laugh and that brings back ,the night I spoofed your son at the shoe store about wearing two different size shoes. You are in my thoughts and prayers. J.B.

  • Janet and Family. I was the owner of Progressive Automotive in Baltimore Ohio for many years. Fred was a customer of mine and my son Bob. He was a great guy, and was so much more than a customer, he was a good friend. He was the high point of my day when he came through our door. He was the true example of a gentleman. He will be missed by all that knew him. may god’s healing touch be with you and your family.
