To say, “Fred Varacchi lived life to the fullest,” would be an understatement. He took every opportunity to experience life physically, mentally, and emotionally. He loved challenging his physical ability to drive cars, motorcycles, and boats. Fred tried almost every sport imaginable. His intelligence grew with every professional challenge put in front of him. Fred’s desire for knowledge and how to use it most effectively was amazing. He was so proud of eSpeed and how everyone worked so hard to develop this wonderful company. Although he put 110% into his career he always had time for his family. Fred would just call during the day to say hello and check up on everyone. There were so many times that he would call just as I was about to call him. We could always know what the other one was thinking. His three children were the center of his universe and they knew it. He would always say he was their “play toy”. Day or night he was a kid at heart and would always delight them with his enormous hugs and kisses. He was their superhero, protector, and best friend. Fred’s determination to get to every school event, conference, soccer game, and dance recital was super human. Fred was a shining example of what a wonderful dad, husband, friend, boss, uncle, brother, and son should be. We love you always forever faithfully, Eileen, Thomas, Corinne, and Tyler.
