  1. Dianne Johns :

    Our deepest condolences to Fred’s family. He was a very special friend to my Aunt Esther and we spent a lot of time with Fred when we were children. My fondest memory was travelling in a car with Fred and Esther to a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for my grandparents and having Fred stop the car on the side of the road and he and Aunt Esther got out and danced right there on Acadia Dr. He and Esther danced beautifully together. I will always remember that moment. Deepest sympathies.

    Dianne, Ryan, Karson and Braeden Johns.
