Freddie's Family,
My late husband Dr. Fay Boozman introduced me to Freddie in 1977 when we went to Freddie's for a Freddie Burger and a hot fudge shake. Both became my favorites!

Freddie's big smile, friendly personality, and helpful nature are what I thought of as soon as I read his obituary. For years after Freddie's Pharmacy closed, Freddie and I would see each other somewhere in the Rogers area. He was the real deal. He was the same man I met many years earlier and always very kind, friendly, and helpful.

May God bless you all during this very difficult time,
Vickey Boozman

What can I add...to the well-deserved, and so many, Tributes to long-time friend Freddie?
Not much can I add, but I am glad we had a good visit fairly recently for a mutual friend, Maxine, also gone now. I regret that I cannot be there with Freddie today at his Visitation.
Sincere regrets to his family and many friends.

Freddie was a one of a kind!
I worked for Freddie at his pharmany for ten years and then followed him to USA drug for another five years.

I would have to say, Freddie was the quickest witted person I ever knew! I believe he made me laugh at something nearly every day. I still think often of some of his classic sayings and have even adopted a few as my own. I admired how he always treated everyone the same. He treated everyone with kindness and consideration. He truly loved his career as a pharmacist. He was defiantly a people person! How perfect was it that he should have the best pharmacy in town and the perfect coffee shop where the best collection of locals gathered for that 10-cent coffee. In all actuality, it was Freddie that brought them in. That's who they really came to see!

If he was having a bad day, you never really knew it and he certainly never took it out on others. I know he experienced many heartbreaking times in his life. I feel, more heartbreak than should be allowed! But he pushed on. He was so strong! I think he had a pretty good view on the world and a great judge of character. He was very honorable and fair. He didn't criticize or put people down. He always believed in people and always gave others a chance, and some a second chance!

I, along with many others, enjoyed fun times around his fire pit. Eating, drinking and just laughing the night away. I wasn't a beer drinker but, did admire his beer keg closet.

I could go on and on but know I'm not sharing anything that we all don't already know. He was so very special to everyone who knew him.

Freddie, I will miss knowing you are not on this earth but, find comfort in knowing that the Lord has eased you of pain and is now holding you safely in his loving arms.

I love you Freddie.

Freddie was such a dear man. I remember when I was a little girl, my grandmother would take me into the pharmacy for her to pick up medications and Freddie would always talk to us. He had a way of making people feel special, even though I was just an ornery little kid. When times were tough and my grandparents were on a fixed income, Freddie always extended their pay time, lowered the cost, or made it work somehow for them. I'm grateful there was someone like him to help. May the Lord know your giving heart Freddie, thank you.

What a guy. Everybody in Rogers back in the day knew Freddie. I remember his smile most of all. At Freddie’s Pharmacy everyone received his special treatment and felt they were his favorite customer. Rest In Peace, Freddy.
