Fred believed in family most, leaving behind a legacy of love and friendship that will continue through the generations. Fred never passed up on an opportunity to meet a stranger and learn their life story. Fred’s work ethic and integrity led him through many career paths over the years. The latest working for the Bureau of Fire Services for the State of Michigan as a Hazardous Materials Storage Inspector, bringing about many new friendships and extended family.
Along with enjoying his family time Fred enjoyed traveling on his motorcycle, camping, Amateur radio (KD8BNZ), working on his property, and of course his love for making maple syrup.
He will forever be remembered for how proud he was of his wife & children, how he always had a smile on his face, conversating with every stranger, and how he loved making memories in life.
