We have been privileged for many years to know Fred as both a co-worker and a friend. At the Bakery, Fred was hard-working and dedicated, but also knew how to make work fun. Some of the best times of all were the hunting and fishing trips we shared. His jokes, his stories, and his positive attitude made each day all the more memorable. He was truly a people person and knew how to relate to all kinds of personalities. Our memories of Fred will always be cherished ones. May God be with Fred and his family at this time and always.

Jo, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very sad time . There is no way to prepare for the lost of a spouse, but you have family and friends that will be there to support you.

I spent the summer of 1978 on his bread truck as his assistant. The boss hired me so Fred could take him fishing. It was a great summer. I learned a lot about hard work and how to keep moving, I lost about 25 lbs. It was a long time ago but the main things I remember are some great conversations and how everyone on his route thought the world of him.

My condolences go out to Fred's family. Fred was a man of many talents and interests. I worked with him at Mary Jane bakery for many years and was amazed at how much knowledge he possessed and the skills he displayed. He was a man of all seasons and could keep you captivated with his interesting stories. He will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I worked with Fred at Mary Jane Bakery from 1979 until 1999. Fred was one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure to know, his personality was always laid back and very friendly. If you had a problem and Fred thought he could help you, you knew he'd follow through. When he spoke of doing the remodel of his home it blew my mind of how smart he was. I wasn't aware of his passion for fishing, but sounds like he lived a very complete life. His parents raised a large family and if all of them were anything like Fred, his parents are to be commended for a terrific job. The world definitely could use some more Fred Keech. God Bless you Fred and your family.
