Condolence & Memory Journal

God doesn't give things to anyone who will take it for granted. That is why he gave Mr. Deluca a great food company, because he knew Mr. Deluca would do the right thing with it. Thanks for feeding my family all these years and beyond. RIP.

Rest in Peace Mr Deluca. I had the opportunity to meet with you at the Subway Headquarters in 2000, and although a very rich man by then, I found you to be completely down to earth and very inspirational. You have built a unique brand that will live on in your memory. God bless.

My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort from the promise of the resurrection hope found at John 5:28,29.

You will be remembered for starting one of the most famous food brands in history, and now having it stained forever by Jared Fogle.

I remember Fred telling me that people were saying to him"why do you drive an old car and instead of fixing up your home just buy a bigger one". He responded by saying because I'm very happy with what I have. Is that so bad?" Here was a man who truly loved life and was truly content. You will be greatly missed old friend

Fred was inspirational. I asked him once for business advise . I wanted to learn how to be the person who they call in to close the deal. Fred kindly said to me "you have so many strengths why don't we focus on your strengths instead. How wonderfully put. He had amazing insights into people. As busy as he was he always found time for his friends whether it be to check in and say hello or to offer lending ear. He will be greatly missed
