My heart is heavy with sorrow to learn of Mr. Freds passing. He was an exceptionally good man. I got to know Mr. Fred and Bobbie years ago when he was an assistant manager at Iuka Walmart. He became affectionately known as Uncle Fred due to his habit of offering me fatherly advice. To know him was to love him. Prayers for you all.
