"Fred was one of the most feared defenders to ever play the game and yet, off the field, you would be hard pressed to find a kinder human being. He was a gentle giant with a smile matched only by his own sheer size. Everyone who knew Fred was better for it, and we are all terribly saddened by his loss. Our hearts and prayers are with his wife Pam and the entire Dean family."
- Dean A. Spanos, Owner and Chairman of the Board
