  1. Worked with Fred for over35 years. A great Health Care worker that loved his work and always achieved the highest standards. We worked a many Rodeo, Physician Dinners and Hospital activity.

Until we meet again.

  2. I worked with Fred many, many years at NWTHS. Some favorite memories – working the concession stand with Fred and Sam at the CMN Ranch Rodeo; Fred playing Santa at all those MAC Christmas parties, and for lab issues of course we went to Fred for his expertise.
    Many prayers for you Judy and your family. What a wonderful life you both had together.

  4. I worked with Fred for several years at the old NWTH on 7th St. I always enjoyed working with Fred, he was a lot of fun to be around. Fortunately, I was able to reconnect with Fred at the laboratory several years ago. I am so grateful for the times we spent together. God bless him and his family in these difficult times.

  5. So many wonderful memories over so many years! Art and I are blessed to have had you in our lives and we never would have if it weren’t for Judy and I working as pharmacists for Furrs’. Judy and I became friends, and then you and Art became friends and there started many years of so much fun! From New Orleans to Ruidoso, from lazy afternoons poolside to dancing the night away on New Years, from New Mexico cuisine to “gotcha glasses of beer”, from flea market finds to mall sales…..we did it all! I’ll never forget you, I’ll always miss you, and I thank you for being such a great friend. Until we meet again, smile down on us once in a while.
    Love you,
    Ethel Garcia

  6. We loved Fred, Judy it was such a great honor to be apart of this family. We didn’t have much time with Fred but the time we spent together was priceless. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. We love you

  7. Judy an Allison,
    I met Fred shortly after I came to Amarillo near the end of 1977 at the old Northwest Texas Hospital. I was in private practice at that time and didn’t see him a great deal but when I needed something in the lab he was clearly the person to go to. I saw a lot more of Fred when I begin working at North West as the chief medical officer in the end of 1994. I worked with him until he retired, and when he retired he was clearly missed by all of us still working there. Please except my sincere condolences. I will continue to miss him and I know you and many others will as well. He was a very good person and a good friend.

  8. Fred, you taught me a lot about the lab and how to work with people. Great teacher and friend from the 1970’s.

  9. I remember Fred very fondly and well from working at NWTH. So sorry to hear of his death and will keep his family in my prayers.

  10. Judy and Allyson,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you both at this time. Fred was one of my dearest friends. He will be missed by so many.
    God Bless you both.

  11. I knew Fred since 1977. He gave me my first job at NWT clinical laboratory. We worked together from 1977 until he retired in 2013. He gave me a chance at management. He was a great director and was like a surrogate dad. I’ll miss your goofy jokes and great devious smile. RIP Fred

  14. Fred I miss you so much. Over 30 years of having fun. Balloon fiesta, following the wives around the flea market and snoozing watching football. We even took our act on the road to New Orleans. We had many great times together.
    Will miss you till we meet again.
    Love you
