Fred will be remembered as one of the hardest working men anyone has known. He loved his family, his farm, and his cows. He enjoyed hunting, fishing at his favorite spot, Big Sandy River in Bruceton Mills, putting up hay on his John Deere tractor, listening to and watching Molly run rabbits on the farm, and watching westerns on TV. He was Church of Christ by faith.
The family would like to say a special thank you to the staff of Crossroads Hospice, especially, Theresa, Amber, Amanda, Shelly, and Debbie; People’s Hospice, Stacey Tennant, for her quick care when he was able to travel to WV for 10 days last spring; his barber, Connie Meadows Smith, for coming to the house to cut his hair when he didn’t feel like going out; and Pastor Craig who came to visit on Thanksgiving day, and the entire Hartville Church of Christ.
In keeping with his wishes, cremation services were provided. A memorial gathering will be held at the Perine Funeral Home, 1348 S.
