He was the nicked grandfather he always gave me small collectible cars and his memory live on with me now 12 I always feel that he is watching over me.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Fred's immediate and extended family. May you all find comfort in the many happy memories he left in your hearts.

Fred was a mentor and colleague during two air evac assignments, first in Vietnam and then in Germany, at the 2nd AES. From our first meeting in May 1968 to our last phone conversation a couple years ago, Fred talked about his experiences as a firefighter.

May the memory of Fred and his stories live on in the hearts of all who new him.

Knew Freddie for three years in Germany 1972 - 1974. What a humerous guy. He was a friend of many folks, including me. (Jim Bridgeman Msgt, USAF, Ret.) He will be missed. May my prayers be with the family of Fred. Adios amigo. Say hello to Roger Manowski for me and my wife Carolyn, Freddie.

Nice memories of the times at the fire house at Hanscom AFB, Fred had so many stories, sometimes we heard the same ones, but that is what me will miss.
A good firefighter, always talked to everyone, some tried to run away, but Fred always caught them.
Pleasure to know and work with him.

Fred you were a great friend. I will always remember how even during the times when you were most sick you were concerned about my father and asking for my mother. Our country is thankful for your courage and your friends are thankful for your kindness.
