He has bravely fought fires in town and has served on the Flower Hill Hose Company Board of Directors as President and board member. Fred has been a devoted member of the Port Washington Chamber of Commerce, the Lions Club, the United Methodist Church, CancerCare, Business Improvement District, PYA and PAL, often serving on their boards of directors. He was proudly Grand Marshal in the 2016 Pride in Port Parade, and he was honored by the Port Washington Senior Citizens Center in 2013 for his exemplary service. Fred is a third-generation owner of S.F. Falconer, Florist.  Through his extreme generosity to many local nonprofit organizations, he has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to the strength of Port Washington.
