Our Dear Friend Fred Winters - Services & Update/Send a message or light a candle
Permalink Closed


To those whom have gotten to know Fred Winters and those whom were not blessed to meet him. Fred is losing his battle against cancer and is currently being hospitalized, they are hoping he may have a chance with the assistance of hospice to have his last hours within the comforts of his home.

Fred is a wonderful man and great friend to all that know him. He survived the Vietnam war as a tough green beret and fought hard to take down the cancer that over took his body.

In this time right now your prayers are needed for him and his family and I will be getting further updates from his great friend AC who is by his side right now.  I had asked AC for Fred's address so cards or flowers may be sent. When I have this information I will update.

God Bless You Fred!

If you would like to send a card or flowers:

The Winters Family: in care of  Vernon (aka Fred)

5463 Joslyn Terrace Port Charlotte Fl. 33981

Fred passed today at 7:07, please take a minute out of your day today to say a prayer for his family if you would.

We  would like to take a donation to send flowers for the services, please pm me or you  can send them direct if you choose to.

I will have updated info for services sometime later today.

Fred's Bio:

Like to fish, 3 years in the home maintenance services business, just starting to get into the non pressure roof cleaning. I do have quite a different background from all the professionals on this site. A short bio... U.S. Army Service: 1967-1993 U.S. Army Special Operations- Retired Chief Warrant Officer (CW3), Special Mission Officer in specialized units involved in sensitive operations as directed by US SOCOM (MacDill AFB-Tampa FL). My Special Forces background I served with the 10th, 5th, 1st Special Forces Groups. My awards include: Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Bronze Star w/V 3rd award, Purple Heart 2nd award, Meritorious Service Medal 3rd award, Air Medal w/V 4th award, Army Commendation Medal 4th award and 12 other awards. I have lived all over the world growing up as my father was in the US Army. I lived in South Tampa and was drafted, went to T.R. Robinson High School, when it was new and well before the chain link fence that surrounds it now. When I retired in 1993 I came back to Tampa and eventually moved to Englewood in 1994.

What does all this have to do with non pressure roof cleaning or pressure washing. Not a thing, however, I have been chit at and hit, shot at an missed, cold, tired, hungry, dirty and couldn't remember when the last time was that I showered. I was a military freefall HALO Master Parachutist / Jumpmaster and have over 4000 skydives. In other words rode hard and hung up wet more that a few times and I would not trade a day or a minute of those times. I have fished professioanally for a number of years and even have built a good fishing charter business.

In the military, namely Special Forces we were taught all phases of constuction, wiring, plumbing everything that goes with building a village for the people you are there to help.

I like doing new things and learning, I do hope that I will be able to contribute to the Professionals on this site, I do and will ask questions as well as give my experiences.

To all of you that post and freely give information and your experiences I say Thank you, I do hope to meet some of you soon.

Kim just called to tell me the sad news about Fred's passing.  She's mentioned taking up a collection for a floral arrangement for his family or his services.  

Anyone wishing to make a contribution may do so by sending it via Paypal to Ted_Saunders@Verizon.net (My Paypal statement to be provided to contributors on request.) 

Any amount that you can spare would be greatly appreciated as we show our respect to our friend, colleague and veteran, Fred Winters.

I donate $25.

I am so saddened over the passing of Fred. He was one of Americas best, a gettle giant, Special Forces trained to kill you with just his hands, yet with a heart as big as the world.

WHY does America's best people have to die, yet scumbag parasites are allowed to live, and breed good people out of existance ?

His term in Vietnam caused his early passing Chris, Agent Orange.. and your right things are not fair many times.
Fred was at peace with his death, after all he was a soldier, his character never left him even in his last days..

Honorable til the end.

I never had communication with Fred, although he will certainly be in my prayers.
