    I worked with Mr. Fred for almost 5 years at Wal-Mart. He always came in the door with his Sunday hat and a smile on his face and always had a hug and a kiss on the cheek for everybody he thought of as family. My prayers and thoughts are with all of his family during these next few days as you say your final goodbyes. See you later Mr. Fred you’ll always be missed.

    Jean, we are so sorry to hear of Fred’s
    passing. Did nor mean to call him Raymond. Gil said “that is probably not the first time he was called Raymond”.

    We will be praying for the entire family. I grew up with and knew all the Raymond’s . Fred and I use to show dairy cattle against each other and his dad help me part time when I first started farming , after he retired . I never saw Fred when he wasn’t smiling. He will be missed by his family and friends.
