Fred highly enjoyed serving his Native community whenever and wherever he was needed. Fred touched many people with his passion for helping people and educating everyone he could the Native culture and ways. He would never hesitate to open his home to anyone in need, welcoming them with open arms. He was a father figure, mentor, friend and inspiration to many. Fred was very proud of his Pomo heritage and enjoyed sharing his stories with the people around him. He loved waking up early morning waking everyone with his personal alarm songs as he stomped his feet with joy. He had a unique sense of humor with such a great contagious smile that shined so bright and a laugh that would always make others laugh around him. He enjoyed fishing, crafting, writing, watching Western movies. He had such a deep passion for and loved listening to Oldies but Goodies.
