I heard on Thursday night that Fred was very ill and in the Pembroke Hospital.  Next morning, news was that he had passed away that night.  Fred has quite a few friends who are members of this site. 

RIP Fred

Damn. It's sad when one of your old comrades pass away, and it's even sadder when he is so much younger than I am.
RIP, Fred.
