ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Proprietor of Khoy’s Mailing Service and former stellar softball player Mr Khoy Frett aka ‘Mailman’ has passed, according to information reaching Virgin Islands News Online.

According to reports, Mr Frett passed away at the weekend following a period of illness.

The death of Mr Frett has shocked many in the community, especially the softball fraternity.

According to a tribute by the Virgin Islands Softball - Baseball Association on its Facebook page on March 26, 2022, was an outstanding player who was profoundly known to deliver a homerun whenever his team, The Bluewings, called upon him.

Talented & successful player

It said Mr Frett played with the Bluewings for many years, and he was their faithful outfielder and the team's motivator in Virgin Islands dialect, “hypeman”. “When it came to hitting, ‘Mailman’ had a powerful compact swing that struck fear in many pitcher's eyes.”

It added that Mr Frett won Most Valuable Player in 2009 with the Bluewings at the 2009 BVI Softball Association Banquet. He was selected to represent the [British] Virgin Islands National Softball Team on many occasions but could not participate due to the management of his business Khoy’s Mailing Service.

Mr Frett concluded his Softball career with team Power Outage. 

Only last week the softball-baseball fraternity was hit with the loss of coach and mentor Mr Terrence Chinnery aka ‘Chino’.

The management and staff of Virgin Islands News Online extend condolences to the family and friends of the late Khoy Frett aka ‘Mailman’.

    It's sad how people are blind to see that we've never saw anything like this young and old just dying from heart attack strokes,cancer etc. People wake up it's all over the world the mRNA/covid 19 vaccine is wiping out millions already. Just wait if your not Vaccinated and see if this is saving people you can see and you know all these people was Vaccinated with atleast one shot. Haters you can dislike all you want because they Bible said God's people will warn people and you all wouldn't listen so take heed because you only have one test because the Bible also said it's a test and this Vaccine is labeled experimental and your life insurance won't cover it why do you think. All nation will go through this test. It causes all big,small,rich,and poor to receive the mark. Rumors of war, earthquakes, famines it's not a conspiracy theory look and observe with your natural god given sense. Pray for answers he will guide you. Stay away from the Mark which is the vaccine

    Rest well Khoy. Rest well. You was such a pleasant person.
    Unlike that Devil **********  I hope he is now burning in hell for all the wickedness that he did to people during his time in immigration. Having sex with persons wife to give them time, messing with people's life and marriages. And when you don't stoop to his level by sleeping with him he spite you and send home your family. I G****** is the next one where his hell will be hot. I always say you can say no and deny a person but you don't have to insult them and treat them like animals.
