  1. Phyllis, I just chatted with Fred on Facebook a few weeks ago. So very sorry for your loss, but I know he is walking the streets of Gold and singing with the angels. IRCS seems so long ago and yet it seems like yesterday in my mind. Love and prayers to all, Bethany House Johnston (class of ’61)

  2. To the family, so sorry for your loss. I worked with Fred for years at the Co-op on Kentucky Avenue. I know he will be sorely missed by all who knew him. You are in my prayers, Margie Smith

  3. One of my favorite brothers-in-law. Never had a harsh word for anyone. He loved God, his wife Linda, his kids and grand and great-grand kids. The world will miss this sweet inquisitive man. Rest in Peace my Brother.

  4. I met Fred when he started dating my best friend, Linda. I was then honored to serve as her matron of honor in their wedding on September 10, 1976 in Kokomo,Ind. I know that Linda loved Fred with all her heart and soul and he felt the same way about her. I am sure they are in heaven together. Fred was always a kind, sweet, generous man that could talk to anyone about anything. RIP Fred and God Bless your family and help them through this trying time.

  5. As a young couple with a brand new baby living away from our family Fred and Linda stepped in and became another set of parents for us. We spent many days and nights with them enjoying dinners, music, conversation and general teachings on how to be good parents. They offered us love and taught us how to be better parents and people in general. Fred’s demeanor was calm and direct. He was a fantastic uncle and a wonderful friend and teacher. I have pure respect for how he loved Linda, his family, his friends and us. Honestly, there are few people that are as genuine as Fred was. Fred was a true role model. Rest In Heaven. Looking forward to seeing you again one day.
