The sad news that we all knew was coming, but just didn't want to believe.
Fred Schutz was one of the finest men at CBS in its history. A true gentleman and scholar in every sense of the word. There was never an air about Fred that would categorize him as Management or Union. He was simply a wonderful man doing a wonderful job. Always a friend with a kind word.
He epitomized the golden age of television and all of the gentlemen engineers.
I know he put up a good fight until the end. I hope not only his family but also good doctors comforted him. It's very sad to think that anyone had to suffer though such an illness.
