    Back in 1978 Fred hired me as a Reservation Sales Agent in spite of having some ‘reservations’ of his own about it and for this I’ll always remember him and thank him. He put together a very productive team and must surely have been proud of his achievements.

    All my sympathy to his family, friends and work colleagues – may your happy memories comfort you.
