Fred Lindgren

(1906 - 1999)


Fred Lindgren died peacefully at a nursing home in Southampton. He was held in the highest esteem and will be long remembered as a kind and gentle person. He gave most generous support to the school during his long and distinguished career. He introduced many school leavers to the world of accountancy. Fred was a past Governor of the school and was a dear friend and colleague.

Fred was a quiet, reserved and private man devoted to his wife, Mary and to his children and grandchildren. If was typical of Fred's generosity and that of his daughter, Sylvia who arranged for donations in Fred's memory to be divided between the RAF Association, for whom he did a great deal of benevolent work and the Old Camdenians.

Jo and I visited Fred in the Southampton nursing home just before he died.  Although frail and blind he was, at the age of 93, mentally alert and could still calculate mental arithmetic.   

All those who knew him will respect his memory.
