At SPAWAR I knew Fred and respected him both professionally and personally. Fred was a very dedicated engineer. I am sorry I didn't know him better.

My condolences to the Block family. I didn't know Mr. Block as long as others as I came to NISE East in 1994. Fred, as a Department Head, was instrumental in guiding this newby in the real world of the standup of a new command. The trio of Fred, Giles and Gus offered the wisdom of their years of experience tinged with a sense of humor that is a rare gift in a military/civilian workplace.

In the Navy tradition, fair winds and following seas, Mr. Block!

It never ceases to amaze me just how lucky I was to have been hired by Fred Block. I had no reason to expect such a painstaking mentor, even less so true a friend. I will miss him greatly. It was a privilege to have known him.

My condolences to the family.
