Fred was born on July 18, 1959, in Boston and was a lifelong resident of Everett, MA. He was the fourth child of seven born to Bill & Anne Nee. Fred attended Everett High School and was a longtime employee of Massachusetts DCR (formerly MDC) managing many skating rinks, most recently in South Boston and Boston’s North End.
Fred was a kind, generous person with a strong faith in God. He was a devoted husband and father, his greatest joy in life was his son, Liam. He was an amazing brother to his six siblings, beloved uncle, and a loving cousin. He loved long, scenic car rides, the beach, his Harley Davidson motorcycle, and all Boston sports teams, especially the Bruins. Fred was the best friend a person could ask for and he made everyone feel special. Fred was the go-to guy when anyone needed a “Guy” for anything. His greatest passion in life was to help others, make people happy and to spend time with his family. The world was a better place with Fred in it and he will be sorely missed by many.
