    Best golf buddy! Not long ago he could crush a golf ball. He’ll be remembered fondly. My Grandson Brandon called him “Ninja Fred” cause he’d be walking with us at the Greenbrier Classic & pop up close to the action in just a few short minutes. Fred will be with me till we meet again. So long Freed.
