Fred was a lot of fun at American Furniture. I ran the stockroom which was right next to his workplace and he was always coming over to tell me jokes and teasing me about girls. He was a very good friend and I hate to hear of his passing.

Some of my memories was mixing concrete as a young girl when Uncle Fed and dad built the room on his house many years ago, he and Aunt Wavie bringing me a giant pixie stick, his beautiful garden and the flower bed (circle) shape in front of the house. I always thought he had a sneaky little grin. Uncle Fred was devoted to his love Aunt Wavie and they were always side by side. Rest in peace Uncle Fred.
