A Truck Driver by occupation and a loyal member of the Teamsters Union, his CD handle was "Barnacle Bill" and he loved being on the road. Freddie was a wonderful storyteller and the tale always started with “did I ever tell you my…story.”  Freddie was an avid golfer and loved to read.  Even up until the end, when asked how he was doing, Freddie always responded with, “couldn’t be better” and how true that was.  

Freddie was also a proud member of the United States Air Force during the Korean War.

Fred was predeceased by his former wife Phyllis L. (Collins) and first grandchild Robert Marks Jr. of Braintree, his parents, Lillian (Rose) and Alfred Marks of Boston and siblings: Gregory, Joseph, Beverly and John, and his precious dog Ruthie whom he adored.
