”One day, I was at school and did not have money for my lunch. Fred came up and gave me his lunch
ticket and walked away. He went without lunch for himself for me. “Fred would do yard work all day for
four dollars and take the wages to buy supper for his family. He kept nothing for himself. He was
dedicated to his family. This is the type person he was, selfless and not selfish. Fred always carried
himself with respect and integrity. He was known by his friends in school as “Professor” Carrie Bradford
