In Remembrance: Dave Fryman
As we return from our FSE year-end meeting in Brasstown, one familiar face from the past, Dave Fryman, was not among us. Dave truly embodied this year's theme: People Matter Most.
I first met Dave Fryman in 1981 through my brother Jim. Jim knew Dave from church. Out of that relationship, Dave worked for DeBra at the EPA and NIOSH sites prior to accepting employment with the Cincinnati Public Library where Dave had facility management responsibility for over 20 Hamilton County Library sites.
Then in 2006, Dave rejoined FSE as the Facility Manager for the IRS site in Covington, KY. With that 37-year history, we now come to Thursday, September 6, Dave's last day at work with FSE and his sudden and unexpected death on Saturday, September 8, 2018.
During these difficult days, we need to continue to support Dave's grieving family and fellow coworkers, Jeff and Darin, who worked with Dave until his sudden passing. Additionally, I thought it might be well for our FSE community to pause and reflect on the Kingdom impact of Dave Fryman's life. My wife, Kathy, and I visited the Johns Island Seacoast Satellite Church to praise God for the life of Dave Fryman and to thank Him for the sure knowledge that Dave has now seen Jesus face to face and is with Him forever.
"Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26)
With a heavy heart,
