Fred also was a coach for many ball teams in Cumberland during his earlier years. His pasttime over the past years has been playing Keno and we are sure that the Keno machines will miss him.

We love you forever Dad/Grampa/Brother and there won’t be a day or moment that goes by that you aren’t in our thoughts.

The family would like to thank all of the nurses and staff of the third floor for the care given to our Dad during his past weeks. We would like to say a special thank you to Dr. Lundy for the care that has been given to him over the past 2 years and a special thank you to the ER doctors for the care given to Fred on his admittance to the hospital.

We would like to give a Very Special Thank You to the girls of the Waverly Pub in Cumberland for making sure our Dad always had his Keno tickets watched and delivered back and forth to his table when he came there for his lunch and coffee this past couple of years. Thank you so much. No funeral services will be held as per his request.
