Freddie was born August 28, 1956 in Waco, Texas to Clarence and Zola (Murphy) Brown. At the age of seven years old he moved to Bellmead and graduated from La Vega High School in 1976. He was a pirate through and through, from coaching La Vega Little League for many many years to grilling food for Friday night football with the Athletic Booster Club. Freddie formed many long lasting relationships with Board members, coaches and especially the ball players. If someone needed help, from a fundraiser to cooking some beans, Freddie was always there. We will all miss his cooking. No one can make his homemade dressing, fried pies from scratch or his famous pot of beans, ("not even his boys got that recipe out of him") maybe we will figure it out someday. Freddie received a degree in Meat Marking from T.S.T.I. and had worked different jobs in the past. Most recently he worked at his sister's newspaper "Silver Dollar Press" where he sold advertising. Like everyone always said, "He could sell ice to an Eskimo". He was definitely one of a kind and there was no one else like him.

Freddie always said on August 1, 1990 he married the love of his life, Tina White Sullivan. They merged his 3 sons, her 2 sons and they added a son to form their family. On their 25th anniversary with family and friends present they renewed their vows.

Freddie was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Ray Brown.
