Tommy Grehl & Family, Relatives and Friends of Fred,
Please accept our deepest sympathies. D/C Fred Grehl was my chief when I first joined the NFD and he was one of the best Chiefs ever to wear the NFD uniform and always put the safety of his men first and their needs. We all learned so much under his leadership and it was an Honor and a Privilege to have worked with such a great individual. Chief Grehl and Family will always be in our thoughts and prayers.
May he rest in peace. Amen
