Born and raised in Rochester, graduating from Sacred Heart Cathedral School and John Marshall High School, Fred (Dan to family) was a US Army veteran.  After Officer Candidate School, served in Germany as a Russian translator; he was fluent in both German and Russian.  Upon his honorable discharge, he attended the University of Rochester, graduating with a degree in Geological Sciences, using it for almost two decades in oil & gas exploration in Texas and adjoining states before beginning a second career at the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency in St Louis, MO.  As a consequence of making many close friends, he called New Braunfels and Webster Groves his home, apportioning his time in each with the weather.
