Fred was a favorite uncle to me.I remember staying in Pa.at a young age when the girls were just little .Fred worked evening shift I would wait up for him and he would bring me a sandwich at midnight from the comm. We would sit and talk while he chilled for a few before bed.My memories are special and he will always be remembered.Im so sorry for your loss.

My heart and prayers goes out to the entire family and friends for our loss. In 1994 the Spencer Crew moved to Kempner, Texas next door to Mr. Fred and his family. The family welcomed us with open arms. While I was still active duty military and Mr. Fred was retired we visited or talk on the phone daily. We work together on many of his projects. From building chicken/pigeon coups, to putting together table saws. He taught me many things: like how to install electrical wiring for lights; how to put on break shoes for a vehicle; what, when and how to plant a garden in Texas; bought a boat, but we never caught any fish (lol), but we still enjoyed the fishing trips; mostly he taught me how to be a strong father figure and laugh at difficult times. Over the 20 plus years of knowing each other we never had a disagreement or a judgmental statement amongst each other. Always having that open ear was always heartfelt and I just want to say thank you my friend. We’ve always prayed for each other and I pray that we will continue to do so. Love ya! Family lift each other up.
