Fred was of Baptist faith. He retired as a farrier after 47 years of shoeing. When Fred began his carrier as a farrier, they did not have ready-made horseshoes. So at the age of 16, he became a blacksmith and bent his own shoes. Horses were his life. Fred enjoyed shoeing and riding horses, trail riding, and working with young horses and mules just to name a few and was a member of the American Farrier’s Association.

Fred is survived by his daughters, Tammie Crosier and Kim Crosier (Larry Chasteen); two step grandchildren, Jamie Moon and Leslie Kendrick; and several cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, Troy Crosier; mother, Irene (Angelly) Dixon; and grandparents, John and Nellie Angelly and Toliver and Ruth Crosier.
