Fred was a standout athlete at East Ridge High School, class of ’75.  He graduated from UTC with a Bachelor's Degree in Education.

 

Fred was born on April 18, 1957.  He was a kind and gentle man who loved his family and to watch sports, especially his beloved Tennessee Volunteers and Atlanta Braves.  He was of the Baptist faith and enjoyed reading his Bible.  

 

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, father Fred Robertson, who passed in 1959, and mother Edna McGowan Robertson.  What a wonderful and joyous reunion they are having.
