Having known Fred for about 50 years, I can honestly say he was the same cheery, fun, cheeky and lovable character during all that time. He was a Gentleman, whose spirit, attitude, friendliness and humour were exemplary and so infectious. He was always putting others first and his contribution to the Heffle Cuckoos Cricket Club over many decades, both as an administrator in many roles and as a player, has been enormous. We will all miss him, but we will always remember him. RIP my dear friend.
