A jurist and yachtsman, Fred died Dec. 12, 2012.
He came to the class from Lawrenceville and belonged to Charter and NROTC. He served as an officer aboard the USS Rizzi until 1954, and graduated from Harvard Law School in 1957. From then until 1969 he was an attorney with Haight, Gardner, Poor & Havens in New York, subsequently joining the firm of Pelletreau & Pelletreau in Patchogue, N.Y.
From 1961 until 1995 he was U.S. magistrate judge for the Eastern District of New York. Fred was president of the U.S. Magistrate Judges Association and an officer and board member of a range of organizations, including the South Side Hospital, the Long Island Maritime Museum, and the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. He also was senior warden of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and a vestryman, president of the Seatuck Environmental Association, and a member of the Great South Bay Yacht Racing Association.
He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; and children Frederic L. Jr., Julia, George, and James; to all of whom we send our sympathy.
