Heinritz's, I am really going to miss my "surrogate" dad. Bud was very special to me. I will miss him at the Poygan duck dinners on the island, and the Canada fishing group get togethers. We had many good times together for as long as I can remember. I know my dad is happy to have his good friend finally joining him and the others. God Bless and comfort you all.

Dear Gretchen and Family, please know that your are in our thoughts and prayers during this most sorrowful time. May your faith in Him, your sweet memories of Fred, and the continuing love of family and friends bring you peace as you travel this journey. We shall miss seeing Bud on Wednesdays as he gathered with his friends for lunch and a game of dice. Always a fun time!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Fred was in our Kiwanis Club for many, many years. He was always so kind and helpful, lending a hand whenever needed. I can still picture him serving meals at the Bean Feed. Our condolences on your loss.

Gretchen and family...as an old time Appleton Coated person, I was saddened to hear of Fred's passing. We served many years together in a great, family oriented company. I will always be especially grateful to Fred for without him allowing my wife and I access to his Senior Notre Dame tickets, we may never have had the opportunity to take-in ND football games when our two kids went to school there. God Bless Fred and his whole family.
