Fred Slegg Obituary, Death – The club is deeply saddened by the news of the passing of our beloved former President, Fred Slegg, over the weekend. Fred was more than just a name; he was synonymous with ‘Mr. Warlingham RFC.’ Not only was he an exceptional fly-half, but he was also a true legend of our club.
Serving in various capacities, including Chairman, Chairman of Selection, and President from 1993 to 1997. Fred’s unwavering dedication and tireless contributions to our club spanned decades and played a pivotal role in shaping the club into what it is today.
As we celebrate 100 years of WRFC, we are reminded of Fred’s significant impact, his legacy firmly embedded in our club’s history. In the wake of Fred’s passing, we have already witnessed an outpouring of warm tributes and heartfelt stories from our members.
Fred was an exceptional Chairman of Selection for 19 years, a period during which Warlingham fielded 7 to 8 teams. His knowledge of every player, despite there being over 200 members at the time, was remarkable. Fred’s commitment to upholding standards was unwavering, and his approach, though firm, was always marked by a fond warmth that our members deeply appreciated.
During this difficult time, our thoughts are with Fred’s friends and family. We will ensure that our members are kept informed of the funeral arrangements as they are finalized. Fred’s memory will forever live on in the hearts of all those who had the privilege of knowing him and benefiting from his invaluable contributions to our beloved club.
