Shortly after, Fred moved the family to Colorado, and their family grew with the additions of another daughter and three sons, Karen, David, Mark and Mike. He worked a few different jobs before joining Mountain Bell. That began his long career with the Bell Telephone Companies. In 1967, Fred transferred to Southwestern Bell as they decided to move back to Kansas City to be closer to their extended families. Fred continued to work with them until he retired in 1996. In 1983, after raising their family together Fred and Marlene divorced.
