My sincere condolences to Fred’s family.. I played on Paul Gaynor’s Little League team the Pirates. Fred and his dad were wonderful people kind fun-loving and had great joy in coaching us.. I would occasionally run into Fred as we both work for the Dupont company some Years ago. Paul and Fred were kind positive influences in my life. I thank them both. I am sorry for your loss and wish your families well going forward
