Tribute paid to Freddy Querruel
A tribute has been paid former Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club member Mr Frederick (Freddy) Ernest Querruel who died on June 22.
The tribute written by club member Mr Kevin Bettridge said: "Freddy and his wife Joan were both Erskinsville people and mad 'Blue Bag' supporters.
"Freddy won a singles title at Erko and two major pairs titles at Umina, with his old bowls.
"Whenever he got on a fast green, he was very hard to beat.
"Freddy and his good mate Kevin Bettridge played triples together for nearly 20 years, first with Joe Brown and then later with Ross McIntyre.
"Fred loved a bet, beer and bowls, in that order.
"Thursday bowls will never be the same without Freddy.
"Fred's best time of the year was when he, Mark Speerin, Ken Harrison and Vic Gauci went to Foster.
"He couldn't wait for it to happen.
"Fred also had his own table on a Thursday...the one closest to the bar and tab.
"He will be sorely missed."
