Fred was born to Joe G and Margarita Garza in Slaton, Texas.  He attended Lubbock schools and attended Texas Tech University.  He worked many years for Coca-Cola Enterprises until pursuing a new journey in Logistics and Installations.  His passion for sports was known by all, he loved football, baseball, golf, and in his younger years boxing. He loved to coach the youth and was well known in the community for his baseball skills and took the Lubbock Dixie team to the Little League State Tournament in 2002, an event he proudly shared with his son Brandon. He shared this passion with all his children and grandchildren. Fred continued coaching throughout the years assisting with his grandson’s baseball teams in Lubbock and Terry counties.  He was dearly loved by all his baseball family. He became a grill master and loved to share his masterpieces of smoked brisket, ribs, and chicken with his family and friends, often exchanging skills with his son Brandon.  He impacted so many lives in so many ways and his presence will be dearly missed. He loved his faith as a Catholic and attended St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church, most of all he loved his beautiful family. His legacy will live on for years to come through those he loved.
