    Guys. it's with sadness that I post this. One of our Club members who was also a member of the Fuge unexpectedly passed away last week. I don't remember his online username here and I know he didn't post much and neither does a Moderator that I contacted. His name was Fred Downs from Lewes. If anyone remembers him or can post his username, please do. He was a really great guy and friend.
    TKS,
    HW

    I'm sorry for your loss, Hatterwayne,

    Did we figure out his screen name on here?

    No, not as of yet. If Admin or Mods don't know, I'm at a loss :-(
    Hoping to talk to some guys from another club he was in and hopefully they may know, or some of them may even be on here. I do know he was on the Fuge because he contacted me years ago through Fuge pm about the club. We had a guided hunt this past year with his son and friend in Oxford that he had won in a auction too. Fred's on the right side of the pic.

    Last time I saw him. He had texted another member the morning of his passing ref how the new ponds were coming at the farm.

    Apparently a massive heart attack while at work. No prior issues or indications to anyones' knowledge. Just goes to show, you never know. When it's your time . . . it's your time.

    I heard from dakndug about this and if anyone can provide Fred's email address, the administrators here ought to be able to track down his screen name. A person's actual name is not maintained on file.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. I'll pass it on to Rob/admin1 and MJ. Maybe they can cross-reference it for you. I'll let you know.
