Fred retired from Sears after 35 years of service. He loved his family and his beloved dog, Dixie. He loved a good joke and to sit and talk. Hunting, fishing, & gardening were some of his favorite hobbies. If there was an LSU baseball or football game on, he was sure to be watching. His endless love, support, and constant concern for the family will be missed. And yes Fred, "Dixie has water."
