After spending his boyhood in Woodruff, Fred moved to Salt Lake City during his teenage years, then to Ogden where he lived the past 51 years. Fred received his education in accounting from correspondence courses and the University of Utah. He worked for Royal Canning Corporation and for Williamsen Body and Truck Equipment where he retired as comptroller after more than 30 years of service. Fred enjoyed his work and
continued his private accounting service until his late seventies. Playing competitively for many years, Fred loved baseball, softball, racquetball, and handball.
An avid gardener, Fred freely shared his flowers and vegetables. Another avocation was photographing ghost towns and old houses throughout the West.
Many of Fred's grandchildren affectionately called him "Grandpa Cone" because he always made them ice cream cones when they visited. Fred was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving as a High Priest in the Skyline Ward. He was the finance clerk for 17 years in the fabulous Ogden 50th Ward where he also taught the High Priests group for many years.
