    I will miss Uncle Fred, his soft chuckle, his pipe, his always smiling and happy personality

    Celebrating a life well lived. I will never forget meeting Mr. Dear in the early nineties while unloading bundles of shingles. You just knew he was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend and neighbor. Something about doing simple work with a person you learn a lot about them. Mr. Dear will never be forgotten. Go Bills!

    My deepest sympathies,
