Fred Suller : 1941 - 2013

Fred Suller, former member of Whitchurch Fencing Club, passed away peacefully at home on 28 October.

Fred started fencing with Whitchurch in 1968 in Barry Diamond’s evening class in Whitchurch Adult Centre, and returned to fencing when the Club moved to Llanishen in the 1980s.

He had previously fenced at school, and had worked with Barry as a compositer & type setter at the Western Mail & Echo.   An expert foilist, and winner of several local competitions, he was known for his very fast multiple cut-overs, and deep lunge.

Fencing was not his only sporting interest, and he was a very good badminton player as well.
