Fred grew up surrounded by the farming and ranching life. He loved working with his Dad raising cattle, hogs, horses, mules, donkeys and chickens. His greatest joy came at harvest time for wheat, milo and hay crops. He could operate and fix all types of farm equipment that came his way. He continued tinkering with engines, running tractors and operating his zero turn mower as recently as last Fall. Fred joined the US Army after high school and was deployed to Fulda, Germany.

He also continued to work the farm with his Dad, served in the National Guard, helped at auctions and was quite the used car salesman.
