From the 1940 Lucky Bag:


Thomaston, Georgia

A genial, carefree, nonchalant friend is Fred. Generous to a fault, he will lend you his last nickel and will give you his last skag. Getting a good start at Georgia Tech, he has been leading the Academic Department a merry chase ever since. But Fred is at his best with his pipe, his gun, and an old hound dog, and many are the reminiscences that shortened our long winter evenings. Not being in the red clay of Georgia very often since he turned sailorman, he has contented himself with showing the rifle team how it should be done. With his Southern drawl and his contagious smile. Fred can never go far wrong.


Fred was lost when USS Houston (CA 30) was sunk on on March 1, 1942 during the Battle of Sunda Strait.

His father was listed as next of kin.
