  1. We are sad to hear that Fred has passed away. Our childhood is filled with memories of your father, Helen, Grandma Lou, Grandpa Ray, Charlie, Ester, and all of your family. We enjoyed playing on Routt Street and all the great Christmas Eves’ and holidays. Fred was a “Great” Uncle…Love the McGills.

  2. Sorry to hear about your dad. had fond memories. He helped me catch my first catfish. My dad and your dad and myself hiked to the bottom of the gunnison river before a dam was built. I remember your parents and mine playing canasta.
    lots of good memories.

  3. You were my rock growing up grandpa, you will never know how much I loved and cherished you. I know I disappointed you many times and I hate that. Your opinion always was and always will be the most important to me. I’m never going to get used to the fact your gone and will always want to go see you. I hope you are happily playing with your animals and Aunt Karen in the mountains now with no worries. You deserve nothing but eternity in bliss. I love you

  4. Please accept my condolences for your loss. I worked with Fred at the Coke Plant and he was quite a jokester and a good friend. Also his sister Helen lived across the street from my mom and we were always visiting when he was there. I have great memories of him.
