Memorial Service for Faredun "Freddy" Chinoy

Faredun "Freddy" Chinoy was well-loved by his classmates and all who knew him. He would have graduated with the class of 2011, but had to set aside his studies for treatment of aggressive cancer. Despite the best therapies available to Freddy and his family, the cancer eventually took his life at a hospital in Hong Kong on June 27, 2012

Sunday evening, 26 August, 2012, the Hebron community came together to mourn the death and celebrate the life of Freddy Chinoy. Freddy's father, his sisters, and his niece joined us. It was a moving service as classmates, friends and staff spoke of the impact Freddy had had on their life.

Below are a few video clips of highlights from this celebration of Freddy's life.
