Fred Victor Centennial Moomau

Fred was born the year of the United States Centennial, and when he was just in grade school he decided that his name should have that in it, and he started to write it in. It stuck and even on legal papers you will see Fred V.C. Moomau. I believe it is even on his headstone.

He worked at the cemetery in Medicine Lodge and took care of the grounds. He had an old dog, that adored him and went to work with him everyday. One day Fred didn't show up for lunch and Susan finally got someone to go and check why he wasn't home. Fred had died at the cemetery and the old dog was laying across his body. They tried to get him off, but finally had to go down to the house, clear across town and get Susan to come and get the dog off him so they could take him away. The family story goes that the old dog laid on his grave until the day he died and would not leave him.
