Fred was born to his loving parents, Mary Florence (Betty) Rich and Fred Lawrence Rich on February 23, 1950. Then came his brother, Robert Boorman Rich in February of 1952. Last but not least came their sister, JoAnn Rich (Moree) in 1954.
He lived a long and diverse life, knowing and enjoying the company of many people from many races, and from many parts of the world. It is fair to say that he was liked and loved by all who got to know him. He enjoyed drawing, model building, doing mechanical work on small engines, electrical work, coloring, volunteering at a food pantry, and making new friends whenever and wherever he could.
After battling a long illness, Fred left us to be with God and join his parents on January 17, 2023. He will be interred on January 25, 2023 at 1:00 pm next to his Mom at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 13801 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring Md.
