Frederick joined the U.S. Navy at 18 years of age, and was a corpsman during WWII. He worked as a motorcycle policeman for Baltimore City and met the love of his life, Shirley Estelle Talbert at his 23rd birthday celebration. They were married June 24, 1950. To this union, one daughter was born. Fredrick transferred to Baltimore County where he continued his police career. In 1966 he began his final career with the US Marshall's Office, retiring in 1976.
