So very sorry to hear about Freddy. He was a good family friend. Gave me my first job at Ht Janet Davis Cleaners. Also bought me my first drink at the Pump in Ft. Lauderdale. Lots of of memories. Love to his family.

Fred was quite the character. Never knew if you should talk to him or not, depending on his mood. When he was in a talkative mood, he was very entertaining. Regardless, he could be very charming. Sorry to hear of his passing.

I got to know Fred over the last year very well. He would visit me every week at my lil outside bar. He was challenging at times but I grew to really care for him. We would talk about his life and also his love of food, travel and fishing. I am truly going to miss him.
"Those who are hardest to love, need it the most" Rest in peace my friend.
