Default Sad News About Freddie

It is with sadness I have to report that Fred Gunning suffered a heart attack today and subsequently passed away.

Well known on this forum and within the Norfolk and Norwich Rover Owners for his enthusiasm with not only his 75's but also his P6.

He will be sadly missed and thoughts go to his family and friends.

RIP


Funeral will be held on Thursday 6th Dec at 11.00am at St.Faiths Crematorium in Norwich.
75 Manor Rd, Horsham St Faith, Norwich NR10 3LF

I can only echo the above sentiments... Saw Fred recently and he looked the picture of health... To say i'm shocked would be an understatement... RIP Fred and condolences to those you leave behind.
