What a wonderful life lead by a amazing person! II never knew that Fred was born in New Haven, CT. In 1900, my Mom was born in New Haven and I was born in the same city in 1942. Then I grew up in Orange, CT, located just outside of New Haven. I married a Yalie who took an engineering job with Inland Steel and that is how we ended up on Dartmouth Road, a road with wonderful neighbors like your Dad.
With love and sympathy to you all,
