  1. .Gigi. was truly admired by us for his zeal in commitment to education over many years. I remember many times in our youth when the always quiet .Gigi. would get his point across with only a few words. I will remember also my Connecticut summer memories with ‘Gigi,. especially playing ball with him and Tommy on the empy lot by his Mom’s house. Our Love to Rosann and Kevin. Cousins Mart, Larry, Nick and his fiancee, Marzena

  2. I am very sorry to hear if Fred’s passing. He was always fun to be around and always one to come and help out a fellow employee in need.

  3. I know Fred experienced a great deal of suffering since he was diagnosed with lukemia. I pray that you will find comfort in knowing that he is no longer in any pain.

  4. I worked with Fred at Norden for about 17 years. I’ve missed him since his last day in January, but being aware of all the pain that he was going through, I’m glad he is finally at peace. Fred was an excellent Engineer and a great friend. If it was technical advice I needed or if I was just having a bad day, he would always know the right thing to say that would get me through it, or at least get my mind off it. During our many lunches together, we spent countless hours discussing all of the world’s most important issues like: who had the best rebates – Staples or OfficeMax, Roth vs Traditional IRA’s, the best way to get home from Norwalk to Milford, Lenny&Joes vs Jimmy’s for seafood, and most importantly, how to get free wireless internet. I will definitely miss you Fred, but I am positive I will be taking many of your thoughts with me for the rest of my life. Thanks.

  5. It was a pleasure to work with Fred. He was a dedicated engineer, who was called upon often for his broad knowledge and expertise. He was also respected by his peers and enjoyed by everyone. As a friend, Fred had great insight. He was a man you could go to for help and advice. He will be sorely missed by his many friends at Norden Systems.

  6. Mr. Botte was my second dad. He was a quiet fun-loving man. Made the best hot dogs in the world, and he gave me great advice. I will truly miss him forever until I meet with him again someday

I WILL ALWAYS BE THERE FOR ROSIE AND KEVIN. SOMEDAY WE WILL ALL BE TOGETHER AGAIN, UNTIL THEN, GOODBYE FOR NOW……. WITH MUCH LOVE, COUSIN GALE

  8. My friendship with Fred began 23 years ago at Norden Systems. Fred’s caring , vast engineering knowledge, and expertise helped me greatly as l worked along side him as a junior engineer. I always enjoyed going to Jordan’s for lunch on Fridays and discussing the next home related weekend project. He was always fun to be around and always willing to help solve a problem when needed. I will miss you Fred, until we meet again someday.

  9. You were my friend and coworker at Norden for 42 years. A great man once said Faith is the certainty of what you hope for. I am certain of my hope to see you again, happy, healthy and smiling so we can discuss our many common interests from this life.They would include Drag racing as youths,Engineering in general and time spent in the .student chair. of Stan Lazecki. Good-bye for now.
