Fred was employed by Schlumberger before retiring, when he wasn’t at work, he was doing the chores, working cattle, baling hay, mowing the yard or feeding the livestock. He didn’t care as long as he was at home. Fred always said, “If he never left the farm, he would be happy!” He was a hard worker and wasn’t afraid of getting his hands dirty. There wasn’t a job to big or to small that Fred couldn’t handle. He was an eBay shopper; you never knew what was going to be on the porch step. Sometimes, the UPS truck would run more than the regular mail.
