I am very sorry to hear of Wilfrids passing.I have known Wilfrid for close to 30 years and we met at Prescriptive and Fitness Gym on 54th Street and the first thing I remembered was his size and that unique deep voice.I always told him he should do voice overs for radio or TV AKA the next James Earl Jones.When you get older we all lose friends and family and it's never easy,we worked together on and off over the years doing private security and facilities.I am so sorry and very sad but I am very grateful for him being in my life,rest in peace big fella John Croghan 917 566 4086
