The girl from the farm down the road caught his eye at a dance and he and Shirley Lydia Mecham were sealed in the Manti Temple on July 26, 1956.  Life was busy as they welcomed five children into their happy home; oftentimes they were running the automotive shop, chasing parts, farming, and milking cows while raising their family. Their adventurous spirits took them many places and Fred, a skilled diesel mechanic, worked on jobsites in Washington, California, Arizona, Hawaii, Montana, Wyoming and other far reaches of the West.

Fred was a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, he had a strong testimony, and served in many callings including ward clerk, ward mission leader, and with Shirley in the Medford Temple, the Addiction Recovery Program, and the Family History Library.

Fred enjoyed many activities including snowmobiling, restoring vintage snowmobiles, reading, working in his large garden, golfing, and all things genealogy.
