Fedex MEC Member passing
Fedex Ladies and Gentlemen:

I was only passed minor details, but Fedex MEC member and Fedex Captain, Fred B, passed over the weekend in what appears to have been a motorcycle accident.

Please keep his family in your thoughts, and if you have questions, please contact the MEC.

Best Regards to all.

Good guy ... very sorry to hear this. I'll keep him and his family in my thoughts and prayers.

Although I am not FedEx, I came to know Fred as a most ethical, moral, hardworking, trustworthy, straight shootiing man. We first communicated around the time he decided to run for block rep, and we continued to occasionally email about other things such as life, philosophy etc.

Fred, I hope to see you in a better place.

Fred was one of the good guys. A fun and professional guy that I always enjoyed flying with. He had a wonderful sense of humor and will be missed by all his friends. Our thoughts and prayers goes out to his family. RIP Fred.

I raised a glass tonight in his memory - I know he would have approved.

He will be missed by everyone who knew him.

A single malt salute to a fine aviator and good friend... Cheers Fred

Shocking news on a great guy who was a true line-pilot advocate.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Fred's family.

God Bless.
