Fred was President of Senior Tennis 2007-09 and again 2011-12. He was always kind and calm, exhibiting the best kind of leadership for the club. Fred graduated from Beloit Catholic High School (WI) in 1959 then attended The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where he earned a BA degree, with a major in art and a minor in Spanish. A lifelong educator, Fred landed his first teaching job in Lancaster, WI, where he taught art and began the Spanish language curriculum. Additionally, he was the faculty advisor for the Art Club and Spanish Club and served as an assistant coach for football, basketball, cross country and golf.
As he did throughout his life, Fred used his summer breaks to provide his gifts to others as he painted houses around Lancaster as well as conduct summer pottery classes with his high school students. While Fred eventually shifted his professional career from teaching to financial planning, focusing much of his clientele on educators to help secure their futures, Fred consistently found ways to use his creativity to enhance and educate the small corners of the world in which he engaged. In later years, Fred developed his tennis skills, and eventually also pickle ball. We will miss Freds generosity, leadership and good nature.
