I was sorry to learn of Fred's passing. I enjoyed seeing him at the exercise video at the Senior Center and talking about Rutgers football. He always had a pleasant smile and nice words. I will miss him.

Fred Soriano was one of the nicest, most gentle men I've ever known. He made me laugh, he was a musician, he loved life, and the father of my best friend - Joan. May Mr. Soriano rest in eternal peace with a chorus of Angel's to welcome him to his heavenly home.
