Fred, or as some came to know him as Fearless Fred, was always active doing something. In High School, class of 1952, his joy was skiing. His true passion has always been baseball where he was the star pitcher for the HS team. Offered a position to play with the NY Dodgers was turned down to join the Army fighting in the Korean war. Fred could also be seen racing down 128 with his friends. Then he met the love of his life… Joan Aston. Devoted and loving husband of 63 years, Fred and Joan proudly raised 5 kids in the Wakefield area. As Fred grew older, he came to love the simple things in life like his morning coffees, golfing with friends, working in the yard, watching car shows and just working around the house. If you know Fred, you know he couldn't sit still for long!
