After completing his service to his country, he spent the next 40 years in service to the Town of Framingham, first as a police officer and then as the Sealer of Weights and Measures, from which he retired in 1986. In 1981 Fred and Jean opened the Golden Spoon Coffee Shoppe in Hopkinton. The family owned and operated this Hopkinton legend for 30 years. During his lifetime he enjoyed many activities, including owning and racing harness horses at the old Foxborough Racetrack. Fred also enjoyed spending many hours in his yard taking care of the lawn, bushes and trees. His daily visits to the Golden Spoon were the source of many great memories and brought him much joy.
