Fred turned 77 on the Fourth of July and was overwhelmed with loving wishes from family, friends and fans near and far. He celebrated quietly at home with a little barbecue — one of his favorite things — and is sending love and gratitude to all who reached out for his special day. Below is a sampling of wishes on facebook, but many, many, many more came though on that platform and by text, phone, email and more. To all, he says THANK YOU!!
