I hope you have a very Happy Birthday
I have had many dear friends over the years, but a person only has a few "best friends" in his lifetime. Fred was one of those. As a 15-year old kid I moved from Southern California to the tiny town of Duchesne, Utah. You might as well have dropped me on Mars -- I felt that out of place. Yet one of those who reached out and befriended me was Fred Hayes. For the rest of my time in Duchesne, and into our college years, Fred and I spent a lot of time together -- studying, golfing, skiing, school activities, and college roommates. And while I haven't seen him often since those years, I'll never forget his humor and his friendship. Rest in Peace Fred.
