In Loving Memory
Nov. 6, 1929-Feb. 24, 2006
On February 24, 2006 - I lost my dad in a horrific manner, a fact that my family and I have to live with the rest of our lives. But what no one can take away from us is that he lived a very full, vibrant and happy life and I am so thankful to have had him in my life for as long as I did, the memory of him always makes me smile. My dad was one of the reasons that I wanted to start this organization, as he was a prime example of living life to it’s fullest no matter what age you are. Here is a little insight into the man that I proudly call my dad:
He was a great mentor as a Little League coach for many years. The strongest trait Fred had was his ability and insight to help others strive to reach their fullest potential. He was forever the optimist and was always the first to reach out and shake a new friend’s hand. His smiling face and easy ways will always be remembered.
He enjoyed traveling all over the world, particularly Switzerland, where his parents were born. He loved to dance, and this opened many avenues in which his dancing and traveling the world worked well together. “Have shoes, will dance” was his motto. Among the other activities he enjoyed was softball, golf, shooting pool and running track. He passed down his love of golf and baseball to his children and grandchildren. As a hurdler and sprinter, he went to Japan to compete in the Senior Olympics. He won many medals in Senior Track meets around the United States. Another activity he enjoyed was repairing and rebuilding houses. He was never one to sit still - he lived each day to the fullest. Throughout his life, he was a renaissance man in which there was always something new to learn and enjoy. He spent his last years learning Spanish and taking computer classes.
Although he was very active, his one passion in life was his love for his family and friends. Once or twice a year, Fred and his brothers and sisters would reunite from all parts of the United States to be together as a family once more. He could always find the time to be with loved ones, and this is what has been the hardest part, not having him with us all. He is truly missed, but the memory of his smile and laughter will always be with us.
Enjoy each day to the fullest,
