Heartfelt condolences and prayers to Fred’s family and friends. Fred was a great Putnam Bucs and Tomcat teammate of mine; we shared some great times together. I was privileged to join the CP-1 HOF with him in 2018. I consider myself blessed to have gotten to see Fred then for the first time in many years. May God comfort and bless those who knew Fred. We will miss him.
