Just found out that Fred pasted . I worked with Fred when I was at Barbers Point, Hi as a young ASW Petty officer. We spent many hours together in a special trailer repairing the AQA-5 anti sub equipment, some of which was designed by Fred. He was a true inspiration to me. After my discharge I went back to college and obtained an undergraduate and graduate degrees in electrical engineering to no small part to Fred. I only wish I could have thanked him before he passed as to how much he meant to me. He was a very imposing “older” person in my young eyes. Elevated even higher by driving a Datsun 240Z which Motorola was paying for. Thank You Fred for the inspiration and guidance you gave me during our many hours. Mike Hoggatt, AX2

Fred and my late husband, Dick Petran, were best friends from high school on — after retirement, my husband would drive up to Bellaire and he and Fred would attend many of the Bellaire H.s football games and track meets. He was a loyal friend and wonderful person. I know Fred and my husband are up in heaven having a great time together!

Fred was a good lifetime friend as later in life we spent quite a lot of time at the same nursing home visiting and taking care of our mothers. He was a gentleman and caring person.
