Fred started his adult life doing farm work and soon fell in love with mechanics. Fred was a jack of all trades and was always there in a time of need. He had his hand in raising a handful of his grandchildren. He loved reading, he could sit down with a book and have it read in an hour. He also had a love for video games, but the main thing the made Fred who he is, was his ability to tell stories. Whether it was to help be the calm in the storm or to get a good laugh he always had a story to tell. Fred was a man that always stepped up and helped his family in a time of need. He loved his grandchildren and his great grandchildren with an unparalleled love. Fred also enjoyed hunting.
