So sorry to hear of Fred’s passing. Fred was the first boy that I met when we were very young and in baby buggies. Have known him all of my life . Sending condolences to the family. Prayers for comfort and peace.

Myself and my siblings worked at Boose Farms and got to know Fred back in the late 60's. He would always come get us in the field and take us back to the farm where we could have lunch. He was a handsome young man and we all looked up to him with us being a few years younger. He was either on the tractor or in the truck and seemed to be a hard worker. Prayers to his family during this sad time.
