Messages from Fred’s Family & Friends

For Pete’s Sake | 5/19/20

Fred graciously gave of his time and talents to capture precious moments for our families while on respite. His ability to capture emotion through his lens was a profound gift that has left his mark on our mission. His photo of a young family enjoying the simplicity of the Jersey shore even made its way to Time Square to raise critical awareness for our organization.

Your kindness will support our cancer respite program as well as the creation of a gallery of Fred’s photography to be displayed at our future respite center in the Pocono Mountains. Our hope is that his body of work will bring future families facing cancer the opportunity to feel joy in the reflection of their beauty.

Thank you for enriching my life with your friendship. Thank you for capturing the beauty and at times the grit of the world through your photography. I am forever grateful that you leave us these gifts to fondly remember you.

As one who had the privilege of calling Fred my colleague and friend for close to 20 years I know the depths of his talents, humor and intellect.  A man “for and with others”, Fred was always the first to volunteer to help—particularly when it involved photography!  His immeasurable love for traveling is unparalleled.  For these reasons, it will be our lasting privilege to mark the legacy of his life with a gift to For Pete’s Sake – to establish a photo gallery where his passion will help other travelers along their journey.

Fred was rarer than a unicorn, he faced everything with good humor, great wit and keen intellect. It was a honor to have spent 5 years with him as a colleague. He is missed every single day.
