Fred had many different interesting jobs, one exciting one was with Humphries Gold Mining in Jacksonville working along side his high school Friend, David Lane and new found friend; Cleve Powell, they also worked Cumberland Island, GA for 12-years...... the fun those Boys had in the Old Mansion! Fred moved back to Jacksonville and was hired with Duval Public School Maintenance, as a Welder, later transferred to Putnam County School System as a Welding Instructor, later moved back to Jacksonville and worked with North Florida Shipyard as a Sheet-Metal Mechanic, his last job he loved and it was hard for Fred to retire from Earl Industries as a Ship-Fitter-Welder-Leadman. Earl Industries contracts for the US Navy, jobs well done for our USA.
Fred was in many different groups, NRA, Treaty-Long-Riffle Assoc., Black Powder-Muzzle-Loader and Competition Shoots, he also did his own loading for his Long Black Powder Gun. Fred was more a Primitive Weapon, and Bow Hunter, his kills were never wasted it was always eaten. Loved Bass Fishing, and good at it ... the fish were too....

Of all things in Fred's life that gave him pleasure were his Wife, Children, Grandson and family. He loved home and he loved his Foot-Ball Games.
