Fred and I became friends at Cornell. When I woke this morning, he was on my mind so I thought I’d say hello here and thank your family for keeping your memory alive. I page through the lovely book your mom put together often.

I always think about you this time every year Fred. Always had a lot of laughs with you during school baseball. Eighth grade was your best year. You hit a lot of Homers that year.

You haven't left my thoughts. I moved this past year and while packing I stumbled across the hard covered book that you father sent to me. It was loaded with great pictures and stories. You clearly are missed everyday. -Shiney

Brian Kennedy from Clarkstown North still remembers your athletic prowess. He said you taught him a lot about how to play basketball.

Freddy - it never gets old and it never gets easier. Checked out the gym at Baco and it looked great. I loved how you made us record and write down every set, rep, and weight on our little index cards. "why do we have to write all this down?" "because we want to get bigger Tommy and not look like jokes!" Man, you were the best...hands down

Freddy! I cant believe it's been over a decade since you hazed me. I miss you buddy! Good thing Nagel is still around to blow me up. You were such a great influence, mentor, friend, and a lot more. Thanks for everything. Much love to all the Gablers and extended Baco family.

Still giving us all heavy hearts 12 years later you big lummocks. We miss you and are torn up thinking about what would have and should have been for you and all of us together. Thankfully, Alexis is everything you would have hoped for and worked tirelessly to help shape. Mindy and your family have been incredible stewards of your legacy and we all will always love you. Vino

Hey Fred, When my family moved to Dellwood Park when I was 8 years old, it was you who I hung out with, rode bikes with, build secret forts with. It was you who sold me my very first Playboy centerfold. (Thanks for that - you charged me more then the cost of the entire mag)...good business sense aside, today I visited GZ and found the exact place I spent most of my time searching as a rescue worker. I wish I found you old friend - you may be gone, but don't think for a second that I don't have the Styx and J.Geils Band 33s you got me for my birthday and a forever lasting childhood memories. (got rid of the centerfold) Your friendship made my childhood amazing - and I know how lucky I was to live down the street from a friend that made life fun, even waiting for the bus and having you beam a tennis ball at my ass (vice-versa) as we waited for the bus at the Davidoff's house. At Woodglen Elementary school, when you ran for class President, I remember making a pin that said "Use your head: Vote for Fred". It's an election year - you've got my vote buddy - I was so happy we had such a great time at our HS reunion, but had no idea it would be our last. May you rest in peace. Also, wishing all of the Gabler's and their extended family my warmest wishes on this difficult day. Leslie, Howard and Jolie, you have an amazing Son/Brother!
