Fred was born in 1923 and grew up during the Depression. Attended Austintown Fitch High School graduating in 1941, he Joined the Naval Air Corp at the onset of WWII. A football knee injury grounded him from pilot training so he was discharged. He started college but then was drafted into the regular Navy and served as a recognition instructor at Great Lakes in Chicago. While in the Navy he met Ruth Hope Raub, they married and wasted no time starting a family. He had many relatives in Ontario so visiting there with his family became almost routine. He loved his Canadian family heritage so much that he and his wife Ruth bought a cottage on a lake near Minden, Ontario. For 30+ years they traveled to Big Hawk Lake every spring, summer, and fall to fish and enjoy themselves in “God’s Country”. After retirement he and Ruth spent their winters in Florida where he passed away in 2000. As he requested his ashes were spread on that lake in the early morning twilight, as the water vapor rose towards heaven from the surface of the crystal clear still lake, something very surreal and spiritual was happening. And a call of the loon could be heard.
