To the Burner family, I worked with Fred at The Olive Garden in Paducah for many years. It was always a pleasure to see Fred even after he left as he often came to dine with us. Fred was a wonderful man and was so kind and thoughtful. I am so sorry for your loss but I know he is in Heaven with his buddy Len who also worked with us at the OG. I will keep your family in my prayers.

Best memories of my dad the things he taught me, how to swim, how to ride a bike and playing ball in the front yard with us after a hard day at work. Family and friends at the house after Sunday night church singing while he played the guitar. But most of all instilling in me at a young age, just like he could, that I could do anything if I put my mind to it.
My condolences to the family members that were with my father during the difficult end times.
Dad, I've missed having you around for a very long time, until we meet again.... Love, lGina
