Mr. McCarthy worked for more than twenty-five years at Hinsdale Raceway where ""Here comes the Colonel"" was announced as his familiar Que.
He will be remembered for his charm, wit and ability to tell a great story. A true Irishman in every way, he loved horse racing and sports of which he was a walking encyclopedia. Tremendous athlete, amazing storyteller, full of wit and cut-up humor. Always willing to be the first to give advice and was very good at it. He could always make you laugh. He loved Saratoga Racetrack and York Beach, ME, but above all, his immediate family, especially his granddaughter Michelena, the light of his life. Services will be at Linwood Cemetery in Stoneham, MA on June 7th at 1 p.m. To share a memory of Freddie, send an email to:
