Sorry to hear of Fred's passing; may he rest in peace.  Extending expressions of sympathy to his family.  I remember the Rodgers family from Main Street Parkesburg....a door or two next to the Abrams Family.  Fred always seemed a bit quiet, but a fun person.  I am sure he will be missed by family and friends.
