I worked with Fred for many years at OCM BOCES developing training programs and teaching at local companies on multiple shifts for business and industry. Fred was a wonderful, smart, and witty colleague and friend. He was one of a kind and will be missed by all. My sincere condolences to all of his family members. During our years of working together, he shared many family stories and it was always evident that his family came first. Paula Hayes
