    I had the privilege of working with Freddy at the NCDOT for many years. Freddy’s witty sense of humor and artistic abilities will surely be missed by many. He always talked about his boys and when that first grandson was born you could see a different side of Freddy. He will be missed by many. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Until we meet again Freddy! RIP

    We first met in high school and through the years have seen each other at various high school reunions. Freddy was a unique individual. His artwork was witty reflecting his personality. I could always look forward to opening Facebook and his Good Morning artwork greeted me. What so many did not know was the extent of his knowledge. He could argue with the best about politics and history and knew details of each few ever knew. He was a loving, kind and generous individual and super funny. He could make a room light up with laughter. You will be missed by so many. RIP my dear friend.
