  1. Thank you for your kindness, gentleness and leadership in the early years of the IATA. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers as we travel down memory lanes. Oh, to be young again and experience the thrill of an injury free game night. Spending time with colleagues and sharing a laugh about the differences at the University of Illinois when you attended and during my tenure. Thank you !! Fred, save up the jokes and I hope we can share the in a couple or three decades again. God speed to family and God bless.

  2. Thank you Fred for all the positive contributions you made to the athletic training profession, and the IATA. You were a pioneer in the development of the profession in Illinois. You were a leader and mentor. You influenced and helped countless student athletes at Morton West. You served so many, but always with kindness, understanding and humor. Thank you for your friendship, and for the gift of yourself, which you gave so freely. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family. You will be missed, but not forgotten.

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with the Fahey family today as you bury Fred. I recall Fred as one of the many rock stars at Morton West High School as he served as a coach, trainer, PE instructor and guidance counselor. He was part of a select group of men who influenced many lives at Morton. They include Jim Vopicka, Jim Regan, Ken Geiger and Bob Soucek. They all worked closely with Fred and valued his contributions. I am certain that there are some lively conversations being shared up in heaven now that Fred has reached his final goal. God bless you.
