Lucille, I first met Fred when I bought the Chevy-Cad store from Stout 3/24/58. A great guy to tease and be friends with, Bob Williams 864-246-0318. Greenville S.C.

Mrs. Klompus,
I remember your husband from many years ago when I was a child. My father was John Oberholtzer who worked with Fred, I think, at Meade Chevrolet at one time. I haven't heard his name for many years, but I do remember him. My condolences to you and your family.

Uncle Fred was wonderful. He was kind and had a great sense of humor. I always enjoyed visiting their house. I also thought he was a great horseman, although I was young as I recall watching him ride. He would tease my mother, "Oh LeAnna"...I can hear him say.
Blessings and prayers to my Aunt Lucille and Cousin Janet and the rest of the family.
Love, Barb
