Fred leaves behind a world of friends, life-long friends that will miss him every time they hit that fishing hole and go after that monster buck, crack a cold one at the start of the game or go do nine at the Ponderosa. He loved life and lived it every chance he got. He never had much, but what he had meant the world to him. He will be missed and not forgotten.
