He also enjoyed playing the piano and the guitar, and loved all types of music.
Fred was a member of the Laborers Local Union 645, during which he dedicated years of work before retiring in 2009 to pursue his ultimate passion "To Ride".
Although "Pan Head" Fred was taken unexpectedly, his memory will live on in the countless family and friends he touched as he rode in the wind.

Bikers Prayer
May the sun rise in front of you, may the rain fall behind you and the wind follow you.
May the angels of your brothers and sisters who have gone before you guard your travels, for they know the perils of the road ahead of you.
Keep safe through the rough city streets on your way to the land of the swirling turns and rolling hills.
Let the turning colors of fall keep you warm. Let the eagle guide you to the mountain tops.
Let the Moon's light guide you through the night.
May your tires not fail you, nor your engine grow old.
May your bike draw life from the streams you pass. Keep your seat soft and your mind sharp.
Let the air of spring breathe life into your soul, to journey to another adventure beside your brothers and sisters.
Keep the rubber on the road!
Rest in Peace
