Gregori Ovejas, linked to the Cine Foto Club and the Fishermen’s Society, dies

Gregori Ovejas Ezpeleta died this Tuesday morning at the Sacred Heart Hospital in Martorell. Born in Luceni (Zaragoza) in 1936, at only six years old he moved with his family to live in Súria (Bages). In 1967 he arrived in Martorell for work, with his wife and two children, and stayed there. He worked there in a mechanical workshop, at the Lubesa factory and at Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat, where he retired.

His family and friends remember him as a very sociable, laughing man who made himself loved. Very involved in the associative and cultural life of Martorell, he was part of the Club Cine Foto (1963-2010), being the president of the organization for the last decade.

From the Cine Foto Club, he organized contests such as La Venus, the Photography Biennial, the Premi Vila Photo Contest or the Photo Roll. The organization also collaborated in many cultural events in the town, and organized courses and exhibitions.

Ovejas also integrated the Martorell Sports Fishermen’s Association, founded in 1962, with the intention of bringing together those people who are fond of fishing on the banks of the Llobregat river. The association organized the traditional Fishing Competition, coinciding with the festivities of Pont del Diable, its neighborhood.

The vigil is held in Pomfusa today, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and tomorrow, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. At 5:00 p.m., a secular farewell ceremony will take place in the funeral home itself.
