He served in the United States Army during the Korean War and was a life member of the Fostoria VFW, Amvets and American Legion. He also had been a member of the Fostoria Eagles club.
As a younger man, his passions included hunting, fishing and his numerous cars and trucks. In later years, he took pride in maintaining his house and yard. He was handy in both the kitchen and garage. Fred enjoyed recounting experiences of his life in Fostoria and earlier years in Alvada. His favorite companions were his pet Pomeranians: Candy, Mandy, Peaches and most recently, Lacey. He was a solid, decent man and will be greatly missed.
