Fred passed away February 9th, 2015 in Folsom, CA at the age of 78. He was the second child born to Charles and Minerva Kearney on a ranch near Dixon, CA. He attended Davis High School graduating in 1954. After attending the University of California at Berkeley as an engineering student he signed on with the Air Force Cadet program.

After discharge from the military he resided in Sacramento County for 36 years. He earned a Bachelor’s degree from Sacramento State University and continued his love of learning by travelling the world, reading good books and doing research at the library.
