President Charles Clark told of the life of Mr. Paskett as a church member. He said that for a long time he had wanted to meet the parents of the Paskett brothers, whom he characterized as men of the highest type; his association with the boys had convinced him that the parents, also, would be persons of whom the LDS church might well be proud. Among other things, he said that the Paskett brothers were known as among the heaviest tithe-payers in the Cassia Stake.

Fred is buried in the Grouse Creek Cemetery.
