Fred grew up in Manteca and graduated from Manteca High School in 1967. He served his country in the United States Army and National Guard. Fred was a career firefighter, and retired as Fire Chief after 43 years of service in fire districts across the Central Valley.
Fred was the rock of his extended family and was extremely family oriented. He was also a role model to the countless firefighters who served with him and under him. If you knew Fred, you were family. Fred enjoyed shooting, sports, building models and afternoon rides on his motorcycle or in his Corvette. Fred will be remembered for his compassionate spirit, his heroism, the kindness he displayed towards others and his love for life.
