Fred White died unexpectedly January 12, 2017, in Indianapolis. Fred was a Freshman at Scattergood Friends School, along with my brother Randy, at the time I was a Senior there.
I hadn’t heard from Fred since then, until he moved to Indianapolis a little over a year ago and began to attend North Meadow Friends meeting. I appreciated that Fred lived without a car. He joined us almost every week during our peace vigil in front of the Federal Building in downtown Indianapolis. I also appreciated his presence at all of the Dakota Access Pipeline rallies that we held here.
This Sunday members of Fred’s family will be joining us at North Meadow Friends to remember Fred. I had asked Fred’s Scattergood classmates and North Meadow Friends to share any stories or memories they had, and I’m so glad so many people did so–it was amazing how comments kept appearing. Thanks to all of you for doing so. Those stories and photos of Fred have all been combined in a PDF file, that is available here:
