Fred was born on July 13, 1959 in Waukegan, Il. He grew up in Lake Bluff, Illinois and was a 1977 graduate of Lake Forest High School and a graduate of Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. He graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering and spent his life working in the railroad industry. His passions involved anything with a motor and speed. He was an adventurous soul and his many activities included riding his Harley and dirt bikes, driving his boat and jet skis, and spending winters snowmobiling. Fred loved to relax at his Lake of the Ozarks home with a fishing pole in one hand and a Pabst Blue Ribbon in the other. He most of all loved his family and anything that brought on a good party. Fred was truly loved and will be missed by all who knew him.
Fred’s Celebration of Life will be scheduled at a later date. His family will announce details as they develop.
