My condolences to the family for the dear loss of Fred. May the God of all comfort continue to be a support for you through this difficult time. -2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
So sorry to hear of Fred's passing. I have many fond memories of Fred and the Hefty Family. I first met Fred showing dairy cattle at the Humboldt County Fair. Good times where experienced there. Our families also exhibited at the state fair together. My thoughts and prayers with all of Fred's family.
So sorry to hear of Fred’s passing,sounds like he had a very active life and enjoyed his years with his wife and family. I remember Fred being very. Passionate about the herd of cows he grew up with. Remember Fred attending the very few reunions we had. May the memories you carry in your heart help you in the days and years that come help with your loss of husband, father and brother.
With heavy heart,
Susie Burk Collins 1969 classmate
