Fred worked for a time at Suny Cortland as a Janitor. He then went on to owning his own cleaning business and in his later years drove taxi in Cortland. He enjoyed telling stories all of his life, fabricated or not, nobody will ever know! He also enjoyed spending time with his family and friends even though he always found something to gripe about to those who were closest to him.
