    Many of you know Fred from the original freighthauler pages.
    Gonna miss ya bud..

    From his son posting on Fred's Facebook page:

    Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.
    2 Corinthians 5:1

    Everett Acker Sr - 11/23/1952 to 02/01/2011

    Although we never met face to face, I have looked up to Fred since I first read his blog. Talk about someone to look up to.....MAN.....Fred is one of those people you HAVE to look up to. Fred's now been hauling The Word of God for sometime now. I hope I get to shake his hand when I back into that final loading dock. Go with God Fred. Prayers to his family and friends.

    Gee 58 is not that old?
    Thanks for posting his blog page Jeff.
    Where does the time go,I remember when you and Gutterbum where working to make this message board a place truckers could connect with their peers.
    As well as a grape vine of trucking industry news.

    I had a different handle back in those early days,but I for one am very glad he had the forth-sight to start the ball rolling on this trucking message board.
    Rest in peace
