Tribute wall - a place to share your memories and condolences

It is with great fondness and pride I remember the times when Fred was our Boy Scout Troop Leader in New Norway. As a young boy living on a farm 10 miles NW of New Norway it was difficult for us to get to the Scout meeting, but we did and Fred made it all worth while. I also have fond memories of babysitting for Marjorie at their home West of Duhamel and in New Norway across from the hall. Their home was always a beehive of activity and everyone was welcome. Fred was the reason I started a Scout Troop at the community of Conklin.

We all connected by phone on Oct. 28 to share memories and relate how Fred Tookey and the Boy Scouts have had such a positive influence in our lives.

Our thoughts are with Marjorie and family.
