of North Reddington Beach, passed away January 28. He was 71 years old. Fred was a musician and played the organ for several churches in Pinellas County. He was also a composer and released an album of original works called Star Bound. He served in the Army during the Viet Nam war and spent nearly two years there in 1966-7. Fred was known locally as an avid fisherman. Friends say he knew the ways of the snook as well as the snook itself and was a master at catching the prized and often illusive game fish.
He is survived by his sister, Norma Gene Lykes and three nephews, James, Tyson and Edward Chittenden and their families.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the Fred Lykes Music Scholarship Fund, Department of Music at St. Petersburg College.
