In the early 80's I was an art student at Sage Junior College and worked with Fred who was the carpenter. I learned a lot from him and heard stories about how good he was with black powder guns. I am sorry I never saw him shoot but I had no doubts about his abilities after the first time i saw his gun/trophy room. I moved to Alabama around 93' and lost track of him when things got rough and I was just trying to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. In the early 2000's I moved back to N.Y. and learned Fred was suffering from alzheimer's but was not able to find where he was. Only today did I find his obituary stating he was a New York State Chapion MuzzleLoader. This was taken in my kitchen, Fred Frank and I all worked together and would sometimes get together on the weekends. Fred lived in Stephentown, N.Y. and drove a beetle.
