I’ll see you in Heaven, Fred.

I loved Fred Dishon. Back in the day when we were all working together for Madeira Schools, he was one of the kindest, most caring people I knew. He was great with both our children and encouraged them in their creativity with a special kind of gentleness. One of a kind, that’s what he was. I will never forget him.

You will be missed.

Fred was a great friend. We always connected on a personal level and were always in sync musically.
During the next rain storm if you hear thunder don’t be alarmed, it could be Fred creating another bass line.

For a Long Time Friend

Fred was a best friend for more than fifty years. We always found it easy to share our thoughts on an endless variety of topics. Fred was a multi-talented artist, a superb electric bass player. He was a key contributor to the tight, driving sound of the Shoguns, and played a major role in the production of the band’s 2015 CD. MJ and I will always remember our many visits with Fred and Sandy at their home. With love and best wishes to all of the family.
