Susan Smith - Thank you...
I watched Fred in the 70\'s and loved how he entertained folks. I was in my teens and had a major crush on him. Fred, wherever you are, you will be missed indeed. Rest in peace...

Brad Weismann - An inspiring person
Dear Folks: I was so sorry to hear of Fred\'s passing. I watched him a great deal as a child, and was inspired to follow in his footsteps -- later became a comic and writer because of it. My condolences to his family and prayers for Fred -- you mad me laugh! God bless you.

Scott Coleman - thank you for the lol\'s

Joe Bolanos - A legend....

John Giaccone - Parked his car at Emmy\'
In 1995 when I was a valet attendant. He was really friendly and appreciated that I was a fan. God\'s Speed Fred! Thanks for the great entertainment!

Ruby Heart - A wonderful, talented man
I so appreciated Freds gift, and his ability to be genuinely entertaining without resorting to vulgarity. He was always a breath of fresh air... when I wasnt suffocating from laughter, that is! Everyone in show business has something to learn from Fred Travalenas example. He will be very much missed!

Ida. - The laughter lives on
Fred will be truly missed. But thank God for video and this website. My kids did not know who Fred was but I was able to play the videos for the kids and relive some great memories. The angles are laughing their wings off right about now!

Cole Jacobs - A Show- Biz Trouper
I always liked Fred- He was friendly to folks hed meet and a humble decent man. Most importantly he was as I understand a born again Christian, and by all accounts lived like one. Home to Glory for Fred- Farewell, you will be missed in this world of woe.

Tom, Ro and Mike - Fred The Legend!!! You Will Be Missed!!!
These three Jersey Boys will miss you. We grew up watching you! We grew up laughing! Well grow old missing you!

Blanche Morro- "Blanche, the Singing Bartender" - A True Talented Professional, and \"Friend\"
As a youth, I watched Fred in awe, and hoped I could emulate & give forth my abilities and talent with as much passion & professionalism as he did in every performance. Later in life as an adult, I was blessed & privileged to be able to perform with him, and to befriend a wonderful man (and his wife Lois!) in the process. I cant tell you how much that chance encounter has helped me in my professional entertainment life. Fred and his wonderful wife Lois, helped me to keep believing, and pursuing, despite all of the ups and downs that might befall me. I was so sad to find out today that Fred had passed away. He took a piece of my heart with him, but believe me, a piece of him will always be with me. I have pictures and memories of him that are PRICELESS, and I thank God for having met him, and for having the opportunity to witness the wonderful miracle of ever having him in my life. RIP Fred, you will not be forgotten....Blanche in New Jersey

Jo Ellen Guerin - One Little hand
My thoughts and prayers go out to Freds family as you mourn his death and rejoice his life. I just listened to \"One Little Hand\"...it is a peacful and lovely song that I will share with my niece, Holly who is due next month with her first child. Holly and Fred Jr. attended a school together years ago in Van Nuys. I am so sorry for your loss.

Janice from long Island N. Y.
I was at the airport coming home from a trip and I noticed Mr. Travalena. I went over to him and told him how much I admired his work. He was so gracious and kind. I have a picture of the two of us and will always remember him. He will be missed. Janice

Joe - A talented and funny man who will be missed
Freds impressions were way, way up there in the tradition of Frank Gorshin and Rich Little. I caught Fred as often as possible on TV as a kid - he always made me laugh. Thanks, Fred, for sharing your humor and talents with the rest of us jokers!
