Fred was a hard working man. He did many jobs including but not limited to cutting timber, working with tobacco, traveling to clean trains, many times working for free to help someone out in need. Too many things to list. If you knew him you know how hard of a worker he was.
You would also know that all you had to do was ask and he would find a way to help you out with a beautiful smile on his face.
He was a strong man physically and mentally. Fred enjoyed hunting, fishing and sitting around outside laughing and talking with those around him. He loved his mother with all of his heart as well as everyone in his family. One of his biggest loves was his wife Alice.
Fred was a man that never complained even up until his final moments. He stayed on the go, always helping others and being there for his family and friends.
He is survived by his wife Alice Neathery. His father Puddin (Thaddus) Berkley. Tracy Neathery that he raised as his own daughter. His loving sister's Ronnie, Lawshawn, Catherine and Carolyn; a host of nieces and Nephews. To name a few, Jalesha, Destiny, Quan, Buck and Booney. Along with so many countless friends. Lucille his dog that stayed by his side until the very end.
