For some time he has been in a home in Maidstone and Hilary has visited him daily by on the bus. Fred and Hilary were together for 59 years.
The family has requested that no flowers be sent to the funeral but that donations be sent to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and these can be made online at https://rnli.org/. Donations can also be made at the funeral.
A reception will follow at the Sugar Loaves Public House.
