Previously a resident at St. Bernard's IRA, Fred moved to his home at 80 Edgewood in 2006 and residing there until his passing. Fred enjoyed practicing his faith and celebrating his religious beliefs that in December of 2002 he was certified as a Reverend and approved to preach the word of God by St. Bernard's Catholic Church. Fred enjoyed many of life's pleasures such as dining out, especially cheeseburgers from McDonalds and breakfast sandwiches from McKenzie's, shopping for another bible or cross, listening to his gospel music, reading his bible, drinking ice tea or diet coke, visiting with friends, and daily prayers for all his friends and family. His smile, laugh, and bantering words will be deeply missed by all those who have come to know Fred over the years.
