Freddie Baldwin, 63, of Anderson, IN departed this life Sunday, January 10, 2021 in Indianapolis. He was born October 3, 1957 in Columbus, Indiana.

Freddie “Big Daddy” Baldwin was a kind and gentle soul who loved his family, friends and his music. He enjoyed following IU basketball and football, and rarely missed an Indianapolis Colts game. He was happiest though, in front of an audience playing his music. Freddie was an accomplished musician who played and sang the blues and classic rock at countless venues over the years throughout central Indiana. His natural ability to play virtually any instrument was truly amazing. Freddie also loved putting his thoughts and experiences into writing his own music. He was preceded in death by his father, Freddie A. Baldwin. Freddie is survived by his loving daughters, Wendy Mathis, Amy Baldwin and Renee Watring; Granddaughters, Ginny and Madeline Mathis and Kayleigh Bowman; his beloved parents, Russell and Janice Bauman; his dear siblings, Lori Smith, Rodney Baldwin, Alex (Jeanne) Baldwin, Russell J. Bauman, Chris Bauman and James (Jess) Bauman as well as a host of dear friends and extended family.

Visitation for Freddie will begin at 1:00 pm on Friday, January 15th at St. Pius X Catholic Church (7200 Sarto Drive in Indianapolis) and conclude at time of services at 2:00 pm. Private interment follows at Oaklawn Memorial Gardens. Live streaming of Freddie’s funeral service will be available at: Facebook.com/spxparishindy

I am Freddie’s cousin, I remember him taking me sledding at Tannehill in Taylorsville. We always had a blast even when I hit a tree, he said to me”your alright let’s do it again “. I loved you then and will love you forever. Rest In Peace my cousin.

Will always cherish the way we grew up. Don't know if you were trying to keep me safe or instigating the things I did as a child. Fly with with the angels. Sing again for the family there in heaven. Our new Guardian Angel. Miss you cousin. Always in my heart till we meet again.

I experienced Freddie as a deep human being and he had a special place in my heart. He was an inspiration to me over the past few years as he endured long suffering with grace. I hope special Angel's have met him and that they are making beautiful music together.
