Hi, my name is Hugh and I’m Edward Vladimir Fraters son. I understand that my father has been very active on this forum for a number of years so I thought it appropriate to post up this message.
Edward has been advancing in age and has lived with cancer for over 12 years. His advancing age and medical problems resulted in his admission to hospital 2 weeks ago.
Unfortunately it is with sadness that I have to say that Edward passed away today in his sleep.
I know that my father might have been a little abrupt in some of his posts on the forum, and I can only apologise if he has rubbed anyone up the wrong way.
I have a number of photos from Edwards time as a craftsman and jewellery maker that I’d like to share, so I hope I can continue to post those up to the forum.
