  2. I am so sorry to hear of Freds passing. He was a good friend of the Hawkins family (Arthur, Nancy and Gil) and will be remembered for his contributions to the Leonia community, the Ambulance Corps and the Democratic Party. I am extremely grateful that Fred held the office of Treasurer to the Overpeck Preserve Inc. A cause that continues to define the use of environmental friendly parkland in Bergen Countys Overpeck Park. He will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.
