Fred worked on oar boats for four years, Whirlpool Corporation in St. Paul and Telelect in Bloomington.

Fred loved dairy farming and it was not unusual to hear him singing and yodeling at the top of his lungs from the back 40. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and his trips to Montana elk hunting with the guys. He loved his family and was so proud of each and every one.
As Fred would always say, "Nothing to this farming!!"
