Mr. Frederick Warren Nathan

As a youth Fred liked to play and watch football. Fred attended James Madison High School in Rochester, New York.
He loved cooking what he would call gourmet dishes. He enjoyed playing cards, especially when sister Jackie was involved so he could cheat. Of course she wouldn’t say anything if money was involved. He would share the winnings with her therefore she felt like a cheater too.
Fred was considered a math prodigy growing up. He was transferred to an Advanced Mathematics curriculum.
He was a Jokester, loved music, drawing, and having fun. Fred was a “Jack of all trades.” Fred was a very loyal person.
One of the most important decisions Fred made during his life was in 1978, when he said YES to Jesus Christ.
Fred was employed as a factory worker at Hickory Freeman in Rochester, NY. When he moved to Orlando, Florida he became a Pastry Chef. He later moved to Lawtey, Florida with his significant other, Bernadette Bright. There Fred was a handy man. He and Bernadette also had a Car Washing Business. When he wasn’t working, Fred enjoyed spending quality time at home with Bernadette.
Fred was preceded in death by brothers: Herman Nathan, Jr. (Freda), Larry Nathan, Nathaniel Nathan, sister: Roslyn Cuffy and brother-in-law: Clifford Johnson.
