Fareed Ahmad – Well-known Barber and Football Referee

This afternoon, the Football Federation of Belize issued a release expressing sympathy with the Ahmads on the untimely passing of Fareed.  The release says that the thirty-eight-year-old father of four boys joined the Belize District Association of Football Referees in 2009 and rose in prominence to become a national referee in 2012. He officiated the second leg of the Premier Leagues of Belize Opening Season semi-final match between Belmopan Bandits and San Pedro Pirates this past November twenty-fifth. But Fareed was also known for his inspiration to aspiring barbers. The entrepreneur started the Real Barber Shop seventeen years ago, at the age of twenty-one, and from June fifteenth to the twenty-third of this year, he trained a group of youths in the trade.
