Sadly, family circumstances stop me from coming down to Norfolk for Freddie's funeral.
Perhaps Jeff would be kind enough to pass on our condolences to his family - we will all miss a gentleman.

Just back in from the service, a good send off for a true Gentleman, Freddie’s family said a few lovely words, then a gent form the Norfolk rover owners club spoke about Freddie’s love for the marque.

We were represented by IanG, Jeff (Coolcat) Jay, Steve (Wannty) Deb and I.

The service was as much about cars and family as it was about religion, just about right as I see it .

Cheers Freddie, take it steady up there mate.

Couldn't get there today as I've been a bit under the weather. Good to see the clubs represented. Thank you. Freddie lives on in our memories of him.

Just got back from what I can only say was a celebration of our much missed friend Freddie.
It was a lovely service and a fitting send off for the perfect Gentleman that Freddie was.

He will be much missed by all his family and friends but has left such wonderful memories for all those that had the good fortune to know him.

God Speed Freddie and thanks for being a friend.

Sounds like the club did him proud, six members in attendance. Doubt there will be that many when it’s my turn .

We will all miss Freddie and his humour,he had a great send off by his family and friends,he is now doing spyhole mods and rodding the plenums in the great garage in the sky,watched over by the LCOZ Nurses.

RIP my Friend

Default Will be missed

freddie and I both joined the club around the same time and living down the road we talked and met up like help with my 75 or just in general.
I feel a better person for meeting him.
Now I have met his son Roy, another bike fan we plan to meet up for a ride out and still pop in on Sandra a lovely lady and friend.
Great to meet up with the usual suspects lol.
