Fred “Duckie” Bray-Board Member

Fred “Duckie” Bray met Josh a few years ago when he volunteered to help at Operation Elf Box. He has found that the old adage is true: it is much better to give than to receive, and it’s for this reason that he finds working at Operation Elf Box so rewarding and fun. Duckie looks forward to working on this new adventure with Josh and is motivated to do everything he can to be a positive presence on the board.
Duckie is a retired teacher who has lived in Redmond since 2005 with his lovely wife, Debra.  His chief passion is cheering on his alma mater’s football team. A proud Oregon Duck gave him his nickname.
