    Dear Barb and family,
    I would like to pass on my condolences to you and offer any help that you may need. Fred will always remembered as a fine gentle man of great wisdom and respect for others. To me Fred was a great mentor and like a father taught me respect for flying. We spent many hours building the Preceptor Ultra pup in my garage together. Fred would sit on his green chair watching/guiding me in restoring the plane while telling me many of his adventures. Thank you for being a mentor and Father.
    Yours truly, Dirkjan

    Fred will be missed, he spoke his mind which I respected. He gave of himself with his knowledge and time. I met him at the flying club and he helped me immensely with the building of my airplane. I always looked forward to seeing him especially that smile of his.

    Our deepest condolences go out to the Family and Friends of Uncle Fred. He was such a gentle soul who had a great love for building airplanes and flying them to remote places to go camping & fishing. We had many laughs in the past at Family dinners, he never had a bad thing to say about anyone, such a gentle soul. R.I.P. you will not be forgotten.

    Love Lori & Joel Sellen
