Alfredo “Freddy” Molina Garza III of Crane, Texas has passed from this world on to the next. Visitation will be open to the public from 9am-9pm on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Homes and Chapel. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, only 50 people inside the chapel at a time.

Funeral services will be held at 10am on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Home and Chapel, with burial to follow at Crane Memorial Cemetery. All are welcome at the cemetery.

Freddy was born in San Antonio, Texas to Alfredo Zuniga Garza Jr. and Rosa Elva Molina Garza on December 4, 1971. A lifelong lover of the oilfield, fast cars, family, and food. Alfredo, who was also known as Freddy followed the oil at a very young age to provide for his family. Passionate about his job, Freddy moved up rather quickly, for he was a fast learner. He worked 17 years for Key Energy, then pursued other ventures within the oilfield. Freddy not only worked hard, but played harder. In his spare time he raced his 1969 Ford F-100 at Penwell, while his children who were his biggest fans, cheered from the sidelines.

He was never too busy to spend a Sunday with his “Jefe” cruising in the ’57, nor would he ever turn down a meal prepared by his “Jefa” any day of the week. Family BBQ’s were a regular occurrence, with him probably trying to take over the pit while being the center of attention with his loudness and antics. Also, if anyone knew him, they knew no food was right without a load of Tabasco sauce. Freddy, with his toothy grin was always willing to strike up a conversation with anyone he came across. One can rest assured an honest conversation and lots of laughter with Freddy being around.

There are many people who will remember him for his laugh, jokes and cowboy clothes. There was never a person he couldn’t make laugh and couldn’t piss off. He lived life to the fullest and life was one hell of a ride.

Freddy Garza is preceded in death by his grandmother Paola Zuniga Garza, grandmother Carmen Casio Perez, and grandfather Eduardo Molina Llamas. He is survived by his daughter, Crystal Garza, her partner Elizabeth Flores and grandson Maddox Garza, of Odessa; daughter Kayla Garza, her husband Omar Gutierrez, and grandson Alexander Gutierrez of Odessa; his daughter Rosemary Garza and his granddaughters Zerriah and Novah Benavidez of Crane; son Alfredo Garza Jr. IV, his wife Odalis Garza and grandchildren Mateo and Meilani Garza of Odessa; his sister Beronica Murguia, her husband Heliodoro Murguia Jr, nieces Emily and Nalleli Murguia, and nephews Sebastian and Elijah Murguia; sister Yolanda Murguia, husband Gabriel Tafoya and nephew Hector Murguia Jr; brother Emanuel Garza, nephew Emanuel “Bubba” Garza Jr. and niece Madelyn Garza; sister Adriana Garza, and nieces Jordyn Orozco and Jocelynn Aguayo; parents Alfredo Z. Garza Jr. and Rosa E. Garza.

Pallbearers are Alfredo Garza IV, Emanuel Garza, Elizabeth Flores, Omar Gutierrez, Sebastian Murguia, Hector Murguia Jr. and Emanuel “Bubba” Garza Jr.

The family wishes to give our sincere thanks to those who have extended their love, support and prayers during this difficult time.
