Guestbook for Fred William Lau
sign guestbook


So honored to have known good ol' Fred from 2011 to 2014 when I was a volunteer at the VA Hospital where Fred spent the final years of his life here on Earth. So fascinating to hear Fred tell stories of his time as a very young soldier in the 85th Infantry Division fighting the German Army in Italy in 1944 and 1945 where he carried a big BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle). Fred and his FIVE brothers were all in the Army during the war and all came back alive. I am sure that their mom did a LOT of praying during that time. Fred, I trust that you are with Jesus now, the only One who can save us from our sins. I miss you Fred. So honored to be one of your friends. Roger down her in Ohio now.

I grew up on 21st Street, between Vine and Pine. There were two Lau families that also lived there across the street from each other. Each had college kids renting from them. Is Fred one of those Laus? I believe one or both also was involved in Lau Motors. One brother was married to a woman named Monique. I remember some very interesting things about the two houses. Both women, if these are the correct ones, were very kind to me giving me cookies, etc. They recently demolished two of the houses that might have been owned by Fred and Margaret. If I have the right family, you could always call me at 608-539-4825. I am 73 years old.
