It is with deep sadness that the Schott family must deliver the heartbreaking news that we lost our beloved father, Fred Schott this morning.
Those of you who knew him will remember his positive attitude on life, his infectious smile, his dazzling blue eyes and his warm and kind heart. Unfortunately, his heart was not strong enough to carry-on any further. We are deeply saddened and will miss him immensely.
