    Re: Fred Horton

    I was so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. I always enjoyed talking with him at our annual Conventions, he was always willing to jump in and help out, and to share his extensive experience with other framers. He was a lovely guy, a dedicated framer and long time PPFA member, and will be very much missed.

    I didn't personally know Fred, but my thoughts are with his family.
    I just saw this post and I'm going to ask my boss about Fred tomorrow, he's on the competition committee.
    I'm a 50 year framer and there always seems to be a void in the Framer world when there is a passing.

    Unhappy Re: Fred Horton

    So sorry to hear of Fred's passing. I remember taking his pricing class in Atlanta when I first started in picture framing and visiting with him in his shop in Metairie, LA. He was always so enthusiastic about this industry and always willing to help others. He is greatly missed. It is nice to know that his daughter is continuing his business.
