Freddie was one of the most innovatived NCO's that I ever worked.  Dependable, motivated and innovative, you could count on him to get the job done.  Enjoyed the short time that I got to work with him.

Thank you Chief for your kind words about my father, he passed away June 5th 2006. My father expected the best from everyone and would not settle for less, that was true of his own family. He would bend over backwards to help a stranger and never expected anything in return. He had many friends and was very social, at his funeral many of his friends showed up which made me very happy. I was the last person to speak with him and he was in very much pain. I hope everyone has a fond memory of him, he is greatly missed. Unfortunately, my mother passed away in 2018. She suffered from dementia. They are survived by my 2 estranged sisters in Florida and myself (an Air Force veteran) in Arizona. 

One of the stories I do remember is my father reffereeing a Japanese professional female wrestling match at the NCO club. Low and behold, the ladies turned on him and they proceeded to attack my father, two against one. All in fun!

If you can recall, those were the days of the Stag Clubs, I can neither confirm or deny that I was sneaked in once or twice.

My sisters have all of the photo albums and I can't seem to obtain them, it's a pity.  So many photos of Japan in those albums.

Great to hear from you, and happy that many of his friends came to his farewell.  Hopefully you received many good memories of your dad.
