A Native American of the Hood River area. He was the son of Joe and Martha Aleck.

Fred was a tiny child when he was crossing the Columbia River in a boat with his mother, brother and sister from White Salmon, Washington to Hood River. A large steam boat passed them, creating waves that swamped and sank their boat. His mother tried desperately to save her children, but when help arrived and they were brought to shore both Fred and his sister Virginia could not be revived. An older brother George, could swim and saved himself.
