Mike, David, Julie, & Paul. Sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. I always enjoyed visiting with your dad. He always had time for “our” generation with that big smile and warm laugh! Will never forget when I gave him a MIZZOU license plate to replace the KU one he always had on his car. I told him he needed it so that he would have no trouble when going to the family reunion in MO. He smiled, thanked me, and told me he would take his chances and leave the KU one on! Then we all laughed! Think he told me he put mine on the old car. Wonderful memories of both of your parents! God’s peace to you all.

From Roland & Fern Oelrichs...

From Elaine Hite...

The FBC family has lost one very special, very loved man. When I think of Fred, I see the twinkle in his eye, that big smile and
those big bear hugs, he loved to give out. Know he is having a wonderful reunion with Shirley. Am so fortunate to have known him.
Our sympathy to the family.
