His first love was for animals, in particular snakes. He also raised fish, birds, and many different kinds of animals. Fred’s greatest pleasure and hobby was diving. He was a member of the Bajaos Skin Divers in 1957. Fred, you never left a room empty. And you never left it the same. Your hugs were genuine. Your laughter hilarious! Your anger fierce! Your love, sincere. But, the most valuable thing we all possess and can never get back, your “time.” As he always said, “Time is the most valuable thing we can give to anyone.” Relatives and Friends are invited to the Funeral Mass at E.
