Fred loved to travel - always eager to embark on any venture. In 1992, Fred sold his ranch and moved to 32nd after having a successful career as a cattle broker. Fred was still riding his horse well into his 90’s, attending Downtown Athletic Club as a member when he was 97 and traveling.
Fred was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was respected by all. Over the years, Fred took his children and many of his grandchildren to Washington to visit his roots. He was often asked his secret to such a long & healthy life. His response was always “I
wouldn’t change one thing. I loved what I did”.
Services will be held at Highland Baptist Church on Saturday, March 7th, 1:30 p.m. The family respectfully requests that donations be made to Hospice of Redmond/Sisters.
