    I’m so sorry and shocked when I’ve saw Don Bakers message that Fred past. He was one of the first people I’ve talked to when I started at Federal Mogul. Always a smile and made you laugh no matter in which mood others were. Always gave a helping hand to anyone if needed. I’m sorry we never made it out on the golf course, we’ve talked about it often. You’ll be missed my dear friend, pray and hope you get the same warm welcome as you gave me and everyone when starting at Federal Mogul.
