From Stephen Reeves 20 April 2021 The funeral of Bulls Life Member, Player and Coach Sgt 2nd Class Fred Whitton was very well attended this morning. Family, friends, colleagues and Macarthur Bulls gathered at the Chapel. Such was the large crowd many had to sit outside as all paid their respects to Mrs Joyce Whitton and their daughter Robyn. Mourners travelled from far and wide to be there. Fred enjoyed a good life. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who worked hard within the community as a dedicated Police Officer. Local Police formed a guard of honour as his family entered the Chapel. I was given the privilege to say a few words on behalf of Freds Colleagues and the Macarthur Bulls. I read from a letter written by Bulls Life Member Alan Stephens who was unable to attend due to a severe chest infection. I also spoke about Fred’s positive influence on many young officers who worked under his supervision. I recorded the names of those who could not make it to the ceremony. Afterwards we met at Freds former watering hole for refreshments and a bite to eat. I am sure stories about the life and times of Frederick Keith Whitton will ring out late into the night. RIP our brother.
FRED is NOT mentioned on the Police Wall of Remembrance *NEED MORE INFO

WHITTON, Frederick Keith | Funeral Notices | Sydney | My Tributes
Thank you Rod Sheraton for passing on my message. As you know I have been chatting with Freds wife Joyce.
Fred won the Best and Fairest with the Bulls in the early years.
Sadly both of his sons Warwick and Perry passed away many years ago.
His daughter Robyn has been a rock in their family.
Fred joined the Cops as a Mounted Police Officer at the Redfern Academy before being transferred to GDs at 22 Division, settling in at Green Valley.
He was a keen fisherman and loved taking mates outside on his boat.
I remember in the 70s we went fishing down south. We saw a buoy and I pulled up a trap that felt like it was full of cement. I finally got it on board and it contained the biggest lobster known to man.
We made a deal that he would have Joyce cook it and we would share the bounty.
Not long after this we went to Fred’s for Robyns 21st birthday. I asked about the lobster he said he would go inside and get it.
I was looking forward to a good feed.
Well he came back with the bleached shell!! and said it was the best lobster he had ever eaten.
At least I had the chance to see its red shell.
Yes it was a great 21st with all the Valley boys present. We drank the place dry.
I think I played a game with Fred in 1972. Tough man.
Plenty of good times with Fred and the boys at the Valley when there were 7 of us stationed there just across from the Valley Pub..
God bless you mate.
PS If anyone had Roger Fords, Neil Foremans or Errol Montefiores details please let them know.
