I remember as a great guy and class mate. Wish I had gotten to know him better. Rest in peace my brother..........

I didn't know Fred very well while at Highline. What I do recall is that Fred was well liked and known for his infectious sense of humor. He was kind to everyone who knew him and will be missed by all. Rest in peace my friend.

Was fortunate to have known Fred since Sunnydale Elementary.  A wonderful person -- he always got people to laugh a lot; so fun to be around.  This hurts my heart.

I Guess I've been out of the loop for a while. Was unaware that Fred had passed away. Quite a shocker! Saw and talked to Fred at the reunion. I was so glad he made it there. Made my day seeing him.  

Fred was one of the Beater Squad. I got to know Fred well. Fred helped me get a summer job when I was in college at the machine shop he worked at. Fred was head of the quality control department. Technically savvy and creative, Fred could do it all. 

An avid outdoorsman and skier, Fred was the climb leader of the 1975 climb of Mt. Rainier I was a part of.

I think it was the 30th reunion, talking to Fred and laughing about all the crazy stuff we used to do. I laughted so hard my cheeks ached the next day. What a great sense of humor! 

I fondly remember lying on Fred's living room floor listening to music in the early 70's. Chilites, Alman Brothers, Stormey Monday, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed to name a few of the many  songs we listened to. Guess I'll have to listen to In Memory of Elizabeth Reed again and change the lyrics in my mind to In Memory of Fred Grabos.  What a great guy! 

I have many pictures of Fred which I'll find, scan and post here in the next month or two.

RIP Fred!
