  1. Loved talking to Fred and hearing his many stories and jokes. He is at peace now in Heaven with Jesus. It was a pleasure to have known him. With much sympathy to the family. Ted and Barbara Henry

  2. I remember the way Fred made me laugh with his jokes and stories of his childhood. He was
    always smiling when he went to the beauty shop with his wife and still cracking jokes .
    He always tried to help people no matter if he knew you or not. He made a difference in so many peoples lives with his prison teachings.
    His star is shining above us now and he is in his glory. I was Blessed to have known him.

  3. I will cherish the memory of Fred and his stories about growing up and the adventures he had in his youth. One thing I’ll never forget
    The way he made me laugh with the stories and jokes. He made me a “snake” walking stick
    Which I still have. He is at peace now and with his loved ones. I will never forget his smile.
    Blessings to the Locke family
