Freddy's Memorial

Fred was an amazing man, Friend, Uncle, Dad, and Grandpa.  On Sunday November 12, 2017 Fred went to the ER  because he was really sick and hadn't shown any signs of improvement. They quickly admitted him and transfered him to Largo Medical. Turns out this cough he had had for a while was worse than any of us knew. Fred had a severe case of pneumonia. He was unable to breath on his own, so he was intubated.They immediately began administering antibiotics to fight the infection. The doctors had hopes he would only be on the medication for a few days, and then be released. Days passed and Fred's condition only worsed. They decided to take immediate action to remove the infection. After the procedure, Fred had started to show signs of improvement. Unfortunately that didn't last very long. His kidneys and liver started to fail. The air sacks in his lungs began to harden which stopped oxygen from entering the blood stream. His body and organs were deprived of oxygen, depsite being on 100% oxygen from the ventilator.  On Monday, November 20, 2017 the infection outgrew his strength and Fred passed away. 

  As all of you know Fred lit up a room wherever he went. He loved life and everyone in it.  He made an ever lasting impact on his family, friends, and Clearwater Beach. No one could ever come close to replacing his vibrant, exuberant personality. Fred lived life exactly how he wanted to; traveling, partying and being the center of attention. Taking each moment and living it to the fullest. 

We are asking for donations to cover the medical, and memorial service expenses for our beloved Freddy. Anything and everything helps. Let's give Fred the best celebration of life we can.
