Robert Frederick Joins Lonely Eagles

Robert Frederick Chapter Sgt of Arms has passed away

The Hugh J. White Tuskegee Airmen Chapter mourns the passing of Mr. Robert W. Frederick.  He was an original Tuskegee Airmen.  He served as the Sergeant of Arms of the chapter.

Mr. Frederick also served for many years as the Treasurer of the STL Metro BIG chapter for many, many years.  Cheryl A. Gray remembers his as a great friend and mentor.

Although faced with serious health challenges he was still serving his long time clients by preparing their taxes.

I will always remember him as a humble, hardworking, romatic man with a welcoming heart.
