    I have some of the fondest memories of working at Orgo with Freddy. I loved that man. No matter the dis-gruntled remarks or telling me about his cat. He was so proud when he bought that Buick. He always made me laugh. I will forever remember and cherish our time together! Our condolences to the family. With love, The Capiak’s.
