Fred was a great golfing partner and good friend for many years. He always drove the golf cart and got me closest to my ball so I wouldn't have to walk very far. He will be missed. Charlie Shonfelt

I want to thank Fred & Grace for being great friends to my parents Joe & Char Prohaska. My parents really enjoyed playing bridge and their friendship through the Catholic Church. I also want to thank Fred for being an amazing friend to my dad after both Grace & my mother passed away and he would take my Dad to lunch. Every time I saw Fred he had a smile on his face and positive words to say to everyone. Please accept my condolences and my thoughts are prayers are with his family & friends. God Bless, Dave
