Larry Fredline

March 31, 1971February 16, 2021

Larry David Fredline, 49, of Wichita Falls, Texas, passed away on February 16, 2021 from a hard-fought battle with cancer.

Larry was born in Michigan City, Indiana on March 31, 1971. After receiving his GED, he alongside his wife pursued a degree in nursing (where he got his nickname, “Sweetness,” after getting caught passing love notes in class). With his degree, he worked at North Texas State Hospital and later as a travel nurse, helping many who needed it along the way. He was a constant giver. In life, he enjoyed many hobbies including spending time with his family and friends, listening to music (specifically his friends of AA Bottom), and fishing with his buddies. He also took pleasure in trash-talking around the campfire and annihilating those he found dear at dominoes (except for his son to whom he taught everything he knows).

Larry married Kathy Fredline of Wichita Falls, Texas on August 23, 1996 and renewed their vows five years later on February 14, 2001; they were happily married for 24 years. Shortly after they wedded, he was blessed with a daughter and son, Autumn Fredline and Clayton Fredline, who he loved and treasured as dearly as a father could.

Larry is survived by his wife, children, and three siblings: Juan Tello, Paula Johnson, and Jeremy Fredline, along with many nieces and nephews (and dear, beloved, bug-eyed confidant/pooch, Butterball).

He is preceded in death by his father, David Fredline; his mother, Pamela Tello; and his brother, Andrew Fredline.

His funeral service will be held at 2:00 PM on March 31, 2021 at Hampton Vaughan in Wichita Falls, Texas. His friend, Rusty Nix, will be officiating. The event will also be livestreamed for those unable to attend the service on Hampton Vaughan Crestview Funeral Home & Memorial Park’s Facebook page.
