The celebration of Freddie’s life took place at the Benitachell Bowls Club with a standing room only club house of members, friends & neighbours all in attendance.

Freddie´s life, from the year of his birth to his passing away on September 5th, was beautifully covered by his friends, with many funny stories that all those who knew him over the years were in many of them. Throughout the celebration some of his favourite music was played, also a continuous picture slide show of Fred brought back many memories of a wonderful character that will be sorely missed by all who had come into contact with this larger than life man.
