  1. Trader Fred was kind and generous to many and will be missed. He was always interested in the deal (his business and hobby) and was quick to please customers and friends with deals that favored their wallet and fancy. Fred was analytic and careful in his thinking, which helped in scoping projects but he would be more aptly remembered through his keen interest in family and friends and their long-standing well being. The disease that ate away at him was as cruel and painful as any malady could be, but he didn’t complain while keeping a watch out for others. Praise his kindness and may he be at peace, and in a state of utter rest now!
