To the Belton Family,

We were truly saddened to hear of the loss of Uncle Fred. I have so many memories of Uncle Fred. As a child, I would look forward to getting off the school bus at the store because (1) I wanted to add some afternoon snacks to a growing tab and (2) I enjoyed watching Uncle Fred maintain order. Being well respected by so many in the community,
Uncle Fred will certainly be missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

With love and sympathy,
Nick, Melody & NJ

To the Belton Family:

Words can''''t begin to describe how deeply sorry I am for the loss of Uncle Fred. I remember Uncle Fred as a man of great character. Uncle Fred found joy in working in the yard and relaxing in his car while listening to the radio. I am certain Uncle Fred''s laid back personality will forever be remembered by those that loved him.

With my deepest sympathy,
Krystal Harris

To hear of Fred's passing on Tuesday morning, truly broke my heart. My childhood memories are of Fred and his store. There was no store around where I could get a soda, chips, and a bag full of candy, from top to bottom, for a dollar. He would open up early in the mornings so the kids could get their snacks when the bus stopped.

To his family, may God give you the comfort and peace you will need during this trying time. Fred will be greatly missed.

With my deepest condolences,
Tiffany and family
