I grew up thinking Fred and Barbara were the coolest Aunt and Uncle ever. Always upbeat and interested in what I was doing even in elementary school. Fred had a confidence about him that I felt even as a kid. I always enjoyed being around him at our family BBQ's at Grandpa Bragg's farm when we were kids. And will never forget him using my Dad's .22 rifle (I still have it) to shoot gigantic bull frogs at the pond (Carol was the only one brave enough to carry them up to the house). I have nothing but great memories of Fred. Stillwater has lost a good man. May your sadness in time be replaced with warm memories. Prayers for Barbara, Janet, Carol and Fred. Mark Wharton
