He attended Oak Grove Presbyterian Church where he learned the principles of God and then applied them to his community.  Fred's impact on the community was evident by his numerous years of coaching flag football and coaches pitch baseball for the Newberry County Recreation Department.  The lasting impression he made on the youth of the Newberry Community will not easily be forgotten. 

He also fulfilled his civic duty as a member of the Masonic Lodge Fellowship Post 218. He was also the owner of Cut'N Up Lawn Care Service and a passionate Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Fred joined a host of family angels that preceded him in death to include his parents, grandparents; Fannie Cannon, Joesph Goree Sr., Lucille Chaplin Goree.  He was also preceded by Larry Cannon and god mother Estelle Ruff.
