“Had the opportunity to work with Fred through ISI and being a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church. Fred loved his garden, country music and to cook. He read the Bible and had strong religious beliefs. When he had the chance, he traveled to the Mall of America, the Black Hills, the Ozarks, the Amana Colonies and the Ozarks. Fred will be missed by his family and friends. Mike Andrews ”
