In 1966, Fred met Roberta Wasem, and they were wed in 1967. The couple had three daughters, Sheri, Trina, and Jamie. He married Donna Scott in 2009, and through this union he gained one step-son, Matthew.
More than anything Freddie loved spending time with his girls, grandsons, and family. He never missed any family event, and was known to always bring “donuts” :o) He was young at heart and tried out everyone’s new toys no matter the danger level. Fred was active member of the Sunshine Club and could always willing to help out where needed. Fred liked working in his shop, mowing lawns, driving his blade, working on his vehicles and fishing with his family. He loved visiting with people and was an easy person to talk to. He would often strike up conversations with strangers. Fred would help anyone he could. He had a big heart, great sense of humor and was knowledgeable of so many things.
