Fred was an active member of the American Legion and was serving as the commander of Post 24 in Hailey. He also served in many positions in the Boy Scouts, his favorite as scoutmaster, then in recent years he was on the board of the Snake River Council, now Mountain States Council. As a board member, he was serving as the chairman of the Camp Bradley Committee. He loved Camp Bradley and it shows in the many projects at the camp
His service to camp was not only in the physical sense but working with the boys during summer camp. He was the shooting sports director and many boys learned respect and marksmanship from Fred. His last project at Bradley was the upgrade of the shooting range.
He enjoyed helping his wife with the throwers on the high school track team. And they loved him. Fred didn’t know a stranger and was loved by so many. In his last days, he loved to trap shoot with his sons, Mike, Rick and Phil and many of their friends.
