Fred was a great older cousin and role model. I remember going on outdoor adventures with him and his brother Frank probably 60+ years ago. We also enjoyed a lot of family stories and fun at Kraus Family gatherings In Dalton, Ohio. The last time I saw Fred was with several of us tending our Kraus grandparents' graves in Mt. Eaton over a Memorial Day. Rest in Peace. Jon & Cynthia Tucson, AZ

Sorry for your loss. Your dad was a guy that would stop and help anyone and everyone. I had the enjoyment of working with Fred at Joy Mfg. for a number of years. Janice and I would go out to dinner every Friday night with your mom and dad. Your father would never get upset with anyone no matter what it was. He was a good person and I learned a lot from him. God Bless the families.
