Fred enjoyed downhill skiing, sailing, woodworking, music (playing ukulele and singing in church choir), travel, recreational math, and reading about history and science.
He was loving and giving with a quest for understanding humanity. Fred loved reading historical and scientific literature as well as analysis of current culture and concepts. He loved his family, his retirement life on beautiful Watts Bar Lake in Ten Mile and had a great appreciation for the solace nature provides. In general, he pursued complex thoughts but was not in himself a complex person. He had a great compassion for others. Those who knew him best will hold memories in their hearts!
