He worked as a foreman at Classic Sheet Metal until retiring. Fred was very involved in Northlake Politics, serving 46 years in various positions. At the time of his passing, he was still the City Treasurer for Northlake. He coached Northlake baseball for many years, and was  respected by so very many young boys he influenced.
