Freddie was such a wonderful person. I met him as a customer at the Mtn Breeze Mart near Dillsboro. He was was never just a customer but a friend. Always brought a smile to everyone. Was just thinking of him this past week. He will always be a part of my memories and counted as a dear friend. He is missed

Fredie always greeted you with a smile and laughter. He was always an example of a true friend. He was always there with a helping hand to those in need.I keep saying always, because he was a friend for life and through the years a dear friend to our family. My mother introduced us to him and I never heard an unkind word spoken from him or about him. It has been a blessing to know Fredie and be his friend. I know he is rejoicing in Heaven with his Savior. Love the Gutierrez Fsmily
