Condolences

Condolence From: Ron Paesano
Condolence: Fred was a school friend from Level Green Elementary through Penn Joint High School. Fred was always a happy, friendly guy with a big smile. I enjoyed seeing him at High School reunions, especially our 50th reunion in 2014. Fred was very proud of his family. I will miss seeing him at reunions. May Fred rest in peace.

Condolence From: Natalie
Condolence: I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort your mourning hearts. I pray that you find comfort in Revelation 21:3-5. This scripture paints a picture of a world that is very different from what we see today. A world with no more sickness, pain or death...and it's not a dream, it is a promise from God. He promises to reverse the effects of death and resurrect your precious one. You will never have to say a painful goodbye ever again!

Condolence: I was fortunate to work with Fred for about my first 12 years at Bettis. Through good times and bad Fred kept an even keel. I’m 12 days older and Fred never forgot that. As we were ready to retire Feb 2007 , I stopped by his lab W4R 589 and to reminisce. He told me “I have a beautiful wife and two beautiful daughters ,I’ll be fine”. He was and is.

Condolence From: BEVERLY & GUY DAYMONT
Condolence: Beverly and I only had the pleasure of knowing Fred the past few years. Our link
with Fred and Joan were the love of motorcycle riding. Fred would call us up
" lets go riding" ! From going to seven springs to state parks- but his favored
place was going for ice cream at Bruster's

Fred's shopping place was goodwill. He had a knack of finding the most unusual treasures - a toy -a antique - a yeti. If
we were not with him- he would call us
" gotta come over and see this" of course
because of his bargaining powers he would pay
pennies. With a big FRED SMILE he was proud of his treasures.

You only meet a man like Fred a few times in
your life. A big heart- a family man- a warm smile.

Thank you Joan and Fred for letting us be part of your life. We cherish Joan and will
miss Fred. Until we meet again Fred you are in God's hands. Sincerely Beverly and Guy

Condolence: I've enjoyed so much knowing Fred. He was one of the folks at Bettis that I was always glad to run into. Many of his pals will miss him at the Carriage Inn. He set a standard to admire. Now indeed, rest in peace.

Condolence From: Allie Long, his granddaughter
Condolence: I’ve grown up with my grandpa being in my life. He would come out to my house in Ohio and I would go to his. It was only a 3 and a half hour drive. Sometimes we would go to goodwill and he would ask me to drive and I’d go with him because I found it funny when he brought home something he didn’t need and Grandma got on him about it. Sometimes I would go sit on his lap in the living room, no matter how old I got, and we would just talk about life and how things were going or what vacations he had gone on. We had a special relationship.

One time my parents went to Paris and Spain during the summer and we went to stay with grandma and grandpa. I really didn’t want to because as far as I was concerned, I’d rather be in Europe. I’d later come to realize how wonderful that weekend actually was. Me and my grandfather would go sit on the porch and watch the birds drink from his bird bath and he would let me water his plants. His favorite bird was the bluejay but he really loved the yellow birds. He even convinced me TO RUB HIS FEET! I still can’t believe I did that but he would always say “your hands are much stronger than grandmas, just come do it for a couple minutes.” I always made him put socks on though haha. We grew so close over that 2 weeks. He showed me another aspect of life.

I saw my grandfather take his last breath. The last thing I did for him was make him a cup of tea. I’d like to think that his 2 daughters and I made his last couple days as great as we could. We are surviving on the thought that he is in a better place and no longer suffering. God and his father are with him in heaven. Now he can watch over us and we will always keep him in our hearts. I love you forever grandpa! Thanks for shaping me into the person I am today and for teaching me to drive :)
