I have so many wonderful memories of time spent over my 50+ years of knowing my Uncle Fred that I don't even know where to begin. When I was Christened, he was my Godfather. When I was a kid growing up across the street, he was my cool uncle who made his kids the most AWESOME Halloween costumes. When we moved to Florida we'd cheer the Cardinals when he came to visit for spring training. In high school and college, he encouraged me as I worked my way toward adulthood. When my wife, Carrie, and I started raising a family, coming back to my old home town of Forty Fort from Arkansas or North Carolina over the past 15 years to visit was always special. The hours spent around the dining room table or outside, sipping Yuenglings, enjoying Aunt Shirley's amazing meals, catching up with my cousins....all priceless memories of my Uncle and his beautiful family. To my beloved Aunt Shirley and dear cousins, my condolences during this heartbreaking time. May God bring your hearts solace and peace. I love you all, and I miss you so much Uncle Fred. God bless. Ron.

Freddy has and will always be one of the most appreciated, integrous, trustworthy, honest and genuine human beings I have ever come in contact within any level of society. His dedication to God, Family, Friends and Country will continue to be remembered. And his person and character inspiring. The community has lost the presence of a true human being in all senses and characteristics. While the Family has suffered a tremendous loss, each will be comforted by the fantastic experiences they shared and the living memories they have in their minds’ eye Sincerest Condolences and God Bless, Joe and Kathy Gonglefski
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
