Fred is survived by his wife of 44 years, Anna; daughters, Karen Jaeger and Elizabeth Braden; sons, Doug and Scott; sister, Joan Katko; as well as loving grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Fred spent the last 12 years residing in Franklin, TN after having spent the majority of his adult life in Stamford, CT.  After playing Major League Baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies, Fred successfully ran his own insurance business for 45 years.
