He never complained and maintained his endearing smile and sense of humor till the end. He continued to conduct his investment banking business until his last day. He was an astute businessman and was admired for his financial acumen. Fred cared deeply about his community and at an early age helped to form Freedom House Ambulance Service in the Hill District. He served on the UJA Young Leadership Cabinet and on the boards of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh and the JAA. He was deeply devoted to Friendship Circle and helped them establish themselves as an organization. Fred’s greatest love was his family. He adored his four children and four grandchildren, always trying to give them advice on their schooling and their careers. Fred was a devoted husband and had a loving, caring relationship with his wife, Sally. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. He will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
