I remember seeing a picture of Fred running on a track (presume if was high school) and he did not look much different tall and lean . Fred was always will to help where needed.

Dear Joan, Michael and David. I was so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. . .
I've known him since he was brave and kind enough to give me my first teaching contract (4 months) at North Public School in 1986.
Fred would always talk to me any time we met in the past 33 years. He always had a cheerful smile and a twinkle in his eye, even though I hadn't actually worked for him in ages! He probably felt a little strange meeting up at RTO luncheons after "I" had retired from teaching. He was a wonderful man and I will never forget him.

I truly enjoyed my time at Courtland Public School when Fred was our principal. He was a good strong leader. Very pleasant to all of us in the teaching profession at Courtland.
