    What a sad day–I haven’t seen him in probably 15 years, but remember him like yesterday.

  2. Jim and Linda (Awty Parents) says:

    The stories about Fred began at our dinner table as soon as my kids transfered to Awty. When we finally met him we were surprised to learn that all of the stories and more were true. What a fascinating person. We will always remember his announcing voice and his story telling of impressive sports moments, whether it was of the olympics or a high school state meet.
