I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of Freddie. I knew him from way back as a regular at Dunkin in Long Branch. What a great guy. I was 19 when I met him, but Freddie was able to relate to everyone, no matter what their age! He was so funny and so sweet. Always so handsome and never changed a bit! Everyone always loved talking to Freddie. He was a popular guy and always young at heart! He will definitely be missed by many! Sending much love and condolences to your family. I will always remember his smile and his wonderful sense of humor.

I will always carry with me Fred's charm, his ready smile and sparkling eyes. Every time he came to the barn, he brought such light and love and happiness. It was my honor to know and call him my friend.. To all of his wonderful family, I send you my deepest condolences and love. May God Bless.

I am so saddened that this world exists without Freddie, and am so very sorry for the family's loss. Freddie was the heart and soul of this family. He was fun, funny, forgiving and selfless. Always quick to offer a hand, I remember when he repaired our dining room chair after Ronnie broke the arm (and almost fell out of the chair) on Thanksgiving. It was over a year before I realized Freddie had written "Trish the Dish" on the underside of the seat, then, "Love, Uncle Freddie."
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Much love to Freddie and his family. Al and I used to drive him crazy at times. (When we were younger than our kids are now.) So many stories and so many happy memories. I truly apprecitate all the guidance and advice he gave to me. Love to all.
