Fred spent many years serving as Cubmaster in Boy Scouts of America, as well as holding several positions of leadership in the Masonic Youth organization of DeMolay, in the metro east area of Illinois. He was not only a member of the local Masonic Lodge, but also a Shriner. He spent many years working with youth,  shaping them into becoming upright and productive citizens. 

 

Fred was blessed to be able to take early retirement, and spent his remaining years on Potosi Lake, in Mineral Point, Mo, fishing, playing cards, yard sailing, playing golf, and spending time with a close circle of friends. 

 

Following cremation, Fred’s remains will be interred at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery due to his prior service in the US Air Force.  Arrangements under the direction of C.Z. Boyer and Son Funeral Home in Desloge.
