A graduate of Natick High School, he enlisted in the Navy and proudly served as a Quartermaster aboard the USS WASP.

After meeting Laurel, his wife of 41 years, they resided with their children in Thomaston.

Fred was the chair of the Board of Assessors in Thomaston when he passed.Because of his varied background in carpentry, plumbing, masonry and another hundred and one things related to buildings, he was "right on" when it came to asses new or review past assessments. Next time you have the opportunity to look inside an old wind-up wall clock, imagine all the gears that make the clock "tell time" to be the people that make a town function.In Thomaston, one of those main gears is now missing. Ride on Fred, ride on.

Fred was the best. A real individual, a talented smart man, and a good friend. We'll all miss him so much.

Rest in Peace, Fred. -Martha Brower
