I am not 100% positive. But I believe this is the Fred I remember from when I was a child. I'm going to go for it because his bio matches what I remember about him.

Fred went hunting with the male members of my family at our camp in Media Run, PA. I was a very young tagalong then. It was 50 years ago. I took to Fred as he talked to me like a person and not a snot nosed kid. I remember a year when he came back to camp asking for help dragging out a big buck but denied having shot it. It was a big mystery that didn't get explained for a couple of years as Fred was his mysterious self. Turned out at twilight, as Fred was walking out of the woods, this huge buck ran up to him and Fred raised his rifle and the deer fell over , dead at his feet! He never fired. The deer had been previously shot!

I was ten , eleven years old and asked Fred about the scare on his throat.  He never really answered me an d my older brother asked me to to ask him any more as it was a tracheotomy scare from when he was wounded in Vietnam. 

 Fred stayed in touch with my mother, Rosie, as he called her,. Sending her cards for Christmas and her birthday.  I thought of him at her death and amazingly,  just a few weeks ago, wondering how I would ever get in touch with him and where he was today.

I apologize if I am mistaken about identity here but I will sign off using the name I can still hear him sing out when he saw me.........
