Willie Fred Lux

Born September 2, 1984

Willie Fred Lux age 29, was born September 2, 1984 in Tucson, Arizona. Affectionately known to family and friends as "Fred", Lil Fred", “Sideshow”, and "Freddie".

He was the youngest child born to Deborah and Maurice Lux. He was baptized at Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church. He departed this earth all too soon on September 15, 2013 in Tucson, Arizona.

He attended Tucson High and Sahuaro High School as a star athlete in Track and Field, football, wrestling…and yes even cheerleading. Wrestling was ultimately his favorite sport, which led to winning an Arizona State Championship. He attended Pima Community College pursing his wrestling career which led to MMA at APEX Gym. He achieved TFC featherweight Champion belt, and his fighting record was 5-2. Fred had many different hobbies, and was a true entertainer from juggling, DJing, and dancing. Fred was always joking, laughing, and dancing. Those that knew him, if you were ever in need of the latest music or dances, he was the Man! Fred was so kind and always wanted to help someone, ask Fred for something and if it was within his power he'd do it. No questions.

Fred was a loyal, caring and loving husband, father, brother and friend. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Willie Fred Lux.

Fred leaves to cherish his memory, his wife, Kara Lux; his mother Deborah Asenith Evans; his father Maurice Lux; three children Mya Nicole Hendrix, Jaffar Akram Green, and Maurice Myles Lux; his sisters Latisha Lux and Rachel Myles (Cedric); his nephew Martin Shamar Lopez; his maternal grandmother Mary Lou Williams; his maternal grandfather DeArthur Williams; his paternal grandmother, Rosie Lee Lux; (two) aunts, (five) uncles, and a host of cousins and other loving relatives. There are several close friends from childhood that are considered family as well, who join us in our sorrow over Fred's passing. He was a truly special person inside and out, he could go anywhere and leave a positive lasting impression on every one he met by teaching, helping, and making people smile. He will be missed dearly, and will always be in our hearts… Only the good die young.

I had met Fred briefly many years ago. He was a cool athletic guy that did magic tricks and that made everyone smile. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

Just heard about Fred's passing a few minutes ago. Didn't want to believe it. He and I were high school teammates in football and track for a year at Westinghouse. Fred and I played the same position in football. We had similar build and were very competitive. Fred was a great person and it showed in the one year he attended school at Westinghouse with his fellow bulldogs. He was a great wrestler. Never seen anyone do the things he did on the mat. Fred you will truly be missed. Watch over us all. Prayers to you and your family!!!

Fred was a teammate of mine in high school in Pittsburgh, PA. Many of my former teammates and I just learned of his passing this evening. Fred had a heart of gold and was like another coach on the mat for us. On behalf of myself and the rest of the Bulldog family, we offer our prayers and condolences for Freddie and his family. May Freddie's light shine on all of us and his deeds inspire us to positively impact those around us.

Freddie was one of the best people I have ever known. At work, the gym, or just hanging out, I would see him almost every day it seems. It's still so hard to believe he is gone. My love and prayers will always be with him and the Lux family.
