Freddie worked in Dallas at Asbestos Local 21 as an insulator where he worked on many commercial projects for 17 years. He then owned and operated Forney Insulation for over 27 years until his retirement. His work ethic was a hallmark of his success and he passed this dedication on to his family and his business colleagues. He married the love of his life, Linda. on April 15, 1960 in Dallas and together they raised a beautiful family in a home filled with love and faith. He was a mason of over 50 years with membership in the Brooklyn Lodge where he served as Past Worshipful Master. Freddie was also a longtime and active member of First Baptist Church in Forney where he especially enjoyed his Sunday School the Enoch class. He was a man strong in his faith and he loved to study the Word with his class and his family. Over the years of his dedication to his career, the Lodge and his church, Freddie made countless friends. He truly loved his family and getting the chance to see his children with their children and (later) more children made Freddie incredibly happy and content. He enjoyed fishing and loved taking chances at many games including dominos and bowling along with other games of chance!
