He was one of my all-time favorite teachers. He was approachable and treated us like adults. I am so sorry for your loss and grateful I was one of his students. He just met my son a few weeks ago at Okemos (so glad about that) Kathleen O'Leary Michael.

Fred was such a good friend. He and my husband met in high school and Fred was an altar server at our wedding in December of 1963.

Our prayers for your family. Please know that Mr. Partlows legacy continues on in our family. Our children collect snow globes (as he did from the students at Lansing Catholic) and have received them from their teachers. Both of them also study Latin at their respective schools.

My sister Mary Anne Rodgers Bailey and my nephew Matthew Tuell

How can one honor a man whose career as a teacher is defined by the intensity with which he devoted his heart and soul? After decades, how can his students articulate the power of his personality in that classroom so many years ago? Even for those of us who now teach, how can we possibly emulate him enough to show our gratitude for him, for what he gave us, for what we learned from him? The very essence of what
