He has truly inspired more people than anyone of us could imagine. Many did not know him personally but you can see they felt the same touch as those of us who did.

He was a mentor, and without him even knowing exactly what he meant to some or how he was doing it, he helped a lot of people. for me personally he got me through some of the toughest times I've ever been through, just seeing his work was inspiring enough to keep me focused on something that wasn't walking me down the path to death. Being able to have an outlet that wasn't destroying everything else around. A few short talks with him and not a mention as to what was happening, you could tell he understood. His talks meant something wether it was on the subject or not it was always with the time.

He'd help anyone out with answers or info to lead you to what you needed and just had some nice *** parts. To him There was no build that was bad,or not detailed enough or crappy, you could be a complete greenhorn and have a box stock truck but if it was what you liked it was a good job.

I never had the honor of meeting FGD, but I did talk to him on the phone a couple of times. Like everyone else, I think Freddy was a fantastic builder, and a genius when it came to these trucks. Thankyou Freddy for the kind words and inspiration. I think of FGD every day, and he is still dearly missed.
And I want to thank you Travis for doing this for Freddy. He would truely appreciate this.

FGD was a great asset to this hobby and is terribly missed

Freddy inspiered alot of people with his humor and his builds! I look at a FGD build and it inspires me to try to do something out of the box so to speak!! So we are here reminding our selves that only for a short time we are on this earth to be the best humans we can be and cherish the moments and memories!!

Hurts seeing FGD's things being sold on ebay...just another reminder of his unique building skills with RC's

I would have to agree with Jdawg
I have been going through this board for a few weeks now and his name keeps
coming up with some of the finest and innovative builds I have ever seen
A great loss to his family friends and all RCers.
