While this message is written 2 years after Fred’s death, I would like Fred’s family to know how much Fred meant to me as a colleague and supervisor at NCR Corporation in Dayton, Ohio and later in California. We worked together for several years and he was instrumental in my development as a young NCR employee. One important story, please. In 1969 my Mother became I’ll and was hospitalized in Co,umbus, Ohio. After visiting her I had a trip to Los Angeles. Upon disembarking the plane in LA, Fred met me to break the news that my Mother had died while I was en route to LA. His comfort at the time was invaluable while seated in the LA airport distraught and sad. Fred was a wonderful man who cared for people and especially those that worked with and for him. We saw one another for years and years even after he moved to LA. Upon our retirement we lost track of one another. God Bless Fred.
