“If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime”

I remember being a young boy and every year around November I would get super excited!! This is because we would pack up all of our hunting gear and head to the Deer lease. Most of the time Fred & Rocky dog were already up there waiting on us. It was on that Stump farm in the piney woods of East Texas that I learned many life lessons… Fred was responsible for several of those lessons…. Fred helped teach me how to hunt, shoot a gun, skin a deer, and catch the biggest largemouth bass I have ever landed. That Bass is still in my mancave to this day!!

Thank you, Fred, because you have fed me for a lifetime!

I love you and for that I am eternally grateful.

When I moved to Houston in mid 70s, I spent many an evening with Frederick. We would drive around in his truck, go out to eat and even drink a little beer. He scared me to death riding on back of his motorcycle. But more than that we laughed a lot together. We shared lots of stories together. Great memories for our late teenage years. Also childhood times of Christmas morning together. Cousin your smile will be missed.
Love you

My family was so blessed to have Fred in our lives. He was a very strong man that always did for others and he never let anything get in the way. He could find a way to make you smile even if life had you down. He was a true brother to my husband and a loving uncle to my children. My fondest memories of Fred all bring me back to deer camp. We looked forward to seeing him there. Camp was where we would all slow down and enjoy each other's company. The guys would share stories about things they did when they were young and Fred would just sit back and laugh. He knew better than to open that can of worms. But, he always had something new and interesting to share with us. He loved new toys! If he wasn't sharing his new toy, he was cooking for all of us. Even there he was still doing for others. It made Fred happy being together and just enjoying life. I also remember the day Fred and Linda were married. Such a beautiful couple! They were blessed with a bond that could not be broken. Not everyone is lucky enough to find that kind of love. It is still hard to imagine not seeing Fred but I know he is happy with the Lord and he is smiling down on us. I pray for God to grant everyone peace and healing through this most difficult time. May you rest in peace Fred. We love you and miss you.

My dear beloved brother Frederick,
You and Linda loved and adored each other so much. And you both took good care of each other. Thank you Linda for all you did for him, he depended on you. He wanted to make you happy and give you whatever you wanted and he liked to surprise you.
Thank you Frederick for being such a loving and caring brother to your siblings and an awesome son to our Mother (she loves you so.) Some of your many gifts were loving, caring, giving and helping each and everyone one of us. You never met a stranger and had a lot of friends which you made so easily. After our Dad passed you stepped up to be the man of our family even though we did not ask you to; and you always took time to care and help each one of us at anytime with whatever we needed. Thank you for that; and for always making sure everyone had plenty of food to eat no matter what. You are the strongest person I know and you had such a strong and passionate will to live; and fought long and hard to stay here with us all, no matter what.
What a legacy you have left for us!
I love you with all my heart and will miss you very much everyday.
Your loving devoted sister, Sherry
Rest In Peace sweet Brother in the loving arms of Jesus in heaven and have no more pain. We will miss you, love you and never forget all the wonderful and sweet memories you left for us; the talks, the smiles and the laughter. We are blessed to have had you and loved you as long as we did. Thank you Jesus for giving us that.
Sherry & Chuck Britt and family.
I am including a picture of December 26, 2018 when you and Jan came to my office and I showed you both the private airplanes we managed. You enjoyed it so.

Fred was a great man. One that I was honored to call family, as well as a friend. Fred was a hard -working. Straight-forward. Tell it like it was kind a man. The world needs more great men like him.

I didn’t become close to Fred until my mid 20s. He stepped in to teach and guide me on things, giving me the confidence to get me where I am today. Without Fred, my road would have been a lot harder.

Fred, you will be truly missed and always remembered.

I went to work for Uncle Fred for as a helper one summer as a teenager. I learned a lot from him in that short period. While it was never really spoken the biggest takeaway was, work hard, play hard and don't make excuses.

He was there for my first deer hunt, he loaned me his rifle for that hunt. We all struck out on that trip, but it's where I really came to appreciate the outdoors and planted the seeds that ultimately lead me to the path I'm on now as a game warden. Listening to some of his stories I feel gives me an edge at work sometimes....just kidding, well kinda. I will miss hearing those stories, the hunting ones, and just the stories of the good ol' days. I wish we would have had one more hunting trip.

You'll be missed greatly Uncle Fred, rest in peace. Love ya, Tray

Uncle Fred, with such a sincere bright smile and a mischievous twinkle in his eye, always greeted us with so much love and joy at every family gathering. Fred must have made a conscious effort to get a little one-on-one time with everyone. I always noticed him make his way through the family, separating off in a corner laughing and joking with one loved one and then outside in deep conversation with another. Every function, without fail, at some point I could find Tray and Uncle Fred tucked away somewhere talking about hunting or motorcycles. We will forever miss that sincere bright smile and that mischievous twinkle in his eye!


Happy Birthday Babe! July 28, 2020.


16th Wedding Anniversary in San Antonio



Frederick Owen Stuart, Jr. was born on July 28, 1956 at St. Paul's Hospital in Dallas, Texas. He was the son of Fred and Joyce Stuart. Fred grew up in Houston, Texas and was raised with 5 siblings. He has three older sisters, Jan, Sherry and Kay, one younger sister, Belinda and one younger brother David. On March 8, 2003 Fred exchanged wedding vows with Linda Sue Hager at Houston Marriott South at Hobby in Houston, Texas. Fred fought a brave battle against cancer and passed away on February 5, 2021 at Southeast Memorial Hospital in Houston. He is survived by his wife, Linda, his Mother Joyce, his sisters Jan, Sherry, Kay and Belinda and his brother David.

Fred was an active child who played baseball, as a pitcher and had a great swing. In his spare time he liked to draw. Even as a young boy he was very social and stylish. To Frederick, the most fun to be had was simply playing and spending time with his friends. Even as he grew older, he was able to maintain close friendships with those he grew up with and with those he befriended later in life. 

As a son, brother, cousin, and uncle Fred was extremely close to those he called family. Without fail, he would always bend over backwards and never abandon his family in good times or in their time of need. His tireless dedication showed how he truly had a heart of gold.

To his wife Linda, Frederick was a committed partner, friend, and husband who made sure, within his power, to make her happy and provide her with everything she could want or need. They loved and were dedicated to to one another for over 26 years. Linda was by his side during his final moments.

One of Fred's true passions was being a welder. During his first bout with cancer, he would go to radiation at 6:00 am every morning and would be at work by 7:00 am. He worked for Rex Mechanical for too many years to count! Fred always worked hard to make sure the job was done right and pursued perfection.

Fred enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding his Harley and going to rallies and working on his mom's house. He was content to enjoy his favorite pastimes alone but was always thrilled when someone was willing to go and do things with him.
Though Fred was a doer and rarely sat down, he enjoyed a chance to relax, have some beers, and tell stories. He loved to talk. Even though he lost his voice to cancer, it never stopped him from being vocal and telling you just how he felt. Some of his favorite escapes were a road trip to Colorado, fishing trip to Biloxi, Mississippi and all the motorcycle rallies in Bandera and Galveston, Texas.

Fred was a lover of animals and cherished his pets. Meow, his dad's cat, was one of his favorites. Meow was known as his girlfriend on the side. That cat followed him around like she was a puppy dog. He loved that damn cat and he took care of Meow for 14 years after his dad passed away. His family was rounded out by his dogs Rocky, Cody, Chance and Patches.

Fred was a fiercely generous, thoughtful, passionate, loving and a vital part of so many lives. Fred leaves behind a legacy of life-long friendships and many cherished memories. He touched so many people and will always be remembered as a very exceptional person. Frederick Owen Stuart, Jr. will be a force that will be remembered and loved beyond his years here on this earth.

Visitation is scheduled for February 25, 2021 at Funeraria Del Angel Crespo from 5m-8pm. He will be laid to rest in Parker Cemetery, Jones Schoolhouse in Crockett, Texas on February 26th at 1:00 pm.
