At the time of his retirement in 1992, he was regional manager for most of the United States and part of Canada.Growing up, Fred was involved in the Boy Scouts and earned the rank of Eagle Scout with four palms. He was a man of deep faith and was always actively involved in church. Fred served in Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Episcopalian churches as a deacon, board member, Sunday school teacher, treasurer, and charter member.
