Fred, at 80 years young, had recently celebrated 59 years of marriage to the love of his life. Fred was a man of few words but his actions spoke volumes. Fred was a loving husband, father and Opa (Grandfather). Fred was revered as an advocate for local children’s sports programs either as a coach or a board member to ensure the program’s success. Fred was an active bowler and a proud active member of the American Legion Post 1205.  There was no bigger Chicago sports fan than Fred. You could always find him watching a White Sox, Bears or Blackhawks game.  Fred is survived by his wife Nancy (nee Stewart), children Delana “Lanny” (Tim), Valarie (Jim), Tracy (Steve), Freddie (Tracy) and many grandchildren:  Alan, T.J., Michael, Samantha, Charlie, Sydney, Danny and Mikey.
