Debbie was the one woman that was a perfect fit and that complimented Fred's unique take on life. Debbie served as UROC's secretary for several years and always helped and supported the club.  As Fred battled his illness Debbie was there to help him and support him.  Even in the years that Debbie was ill, she always had a smile, and was always interested in how everyone else was doing. We will miss her.
