Obituary

Freddie Ray Finch, age 75, of Manor, Texas passed away Wednesday, October 28, 2020. Freddie was born May 2, 1945 to Edward Lee Finch, Sr. and Annie Rajnoch Finch.


He graduated from Gonzales High School in 1964. He then moved to Austin, Texas to attend Durham Business College. He served in the U.S. Army for two years from July 13, 1966 to June 27, 1968. Freddie married his love, Linda, on November 22, 1969 in Gonzales, Texas.


Freddie began working at an insurance company until he went into the Army. After being discharged, he worked for the Texas Highway Department. Shortly after their marriage, he began managing a ranch for two dentists in Elroy, Texas. Freddie then went to work for Preston Harvey Construction Company. He then decided to take the U.S. Postal Service test and was hired as a mail carrier in East Austin. Freddie retired from the U.S. Postal Service in early 2006. He also had his own company called Freddie’s Fence & Repair Service. He built many fences in and around the Austin area. He finally gave up the fence business in 2008.


Freddie loved to watch TV, especially sports, old western movies, and the older sitcoms. He loved to dance, and he and Linda danced all through their married life. He also loved to have a drink of Crown Royal. He also volunteered at the Cristo Rey Catholic Church in Austin, Texas and would help get the food for the needy people in that area.


For 20 plus years, Freddie and Linda cooked extra food on Thanksgiving and Christmas and deliver to-go plates to the homebound individuals on his East Austin mail route. The individuals were always so thankful for the food. The individuals received a complete meal with dessert included.
