Sir Freddie Laker remembered

Sir Freddie Laker (August 6, 1922 - Feb. 9, 2006)Sir Freddie passed at 4:55 AM on Thursday morning in Hollywood, Florida.

He’ll be remembered long into the future for his contributions to aviation and his effect on the low cost carrier world as we know it, but he’ll be remembered so much more fondly by those who knew him personally.

Sir Freddie, even in his eighties, commanded the room from the moment he entered with an effortless charm, a quick and clever wit, and a childlike grin and laugh that made you smile before a joke was even told. He was surrounded by love and well wishes up to the moment of his passing.

The family would like to thank the global outpouring of support, appreciation, and respect that has been paid to Sir Freddie.

He was always most proud of the effect he had on the lives of so many people.


A joker to the end, his body will be cremated with his mobile phone in case you weren’t able to get in a last call.

Sir Freddie is survived by his wife Jacqueline, his daughter Elaine, and his son Freddie.

Sir Freddie, we leave you the words of a wise philosopher: “If there is ever a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever”—Winnie the Pooh
