He had two brothers, Charles “Chas” and Woodrow “Woodie” (no middle names) Frederick, who preceded him in death.

Leroy married to first wife, Jean Marie Linderman, 15 Nov. 1947 in Liberty, Texas.
They had six children by that union, which lasted for twenty one years. Joseph Lee, Phyllis Jean [Hyden], Sally Ann [Tudor], Karl Thomas, Patricia Marie[Harrod], and Sarah Kay Frederick [Moore]. Divorced in 1968.

Leroy & Barbara (Moore) Frederick were hosts for several different parks in Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana, etc… after their retirement. In 1995, all the Grandchildren were taken by Leroy’s son, Joseph Lee Frederick & Brenda Louise (Meyers) Frederick, to visit the grandparents in South Dakota & Montana.

Leroy was a loving and loyal Son, Brother, Husband, Father, Grandfather, and Great-Grandfather. He is greatly missed!
I am proud to be the daughter of such an honorable, hard working man, and American Patriot. His word was his bond.

“Lee was an exceptional and hospitable host. He loved his children and grandchildren; I remember the summer that they had four three-year-olds staying with them for a month. Lee was a patient man; I arrived one weekend to find him taking apart a washing machine to clean out the spinach Barbara had put on gentle cycle to wash. When I attended his funeral, I was told that he would talk about my visits for weeks. I love Lee and Barbara. God bless Lee’s memory to all of our hearts!” source: Tommy Mayhood, Jan. 24, 2014

My Paternal Grandmother was Elizabeth Annie “Bessie” Mazac Frederick from Granger, Williamson County, Texas. They married on October 12, 1914 at the St. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church, Granger, Texas.  Charlie and Bessie were both Catholics.

My Grandmother loved pink, so I posted the pink background of the Moravian-Czech flower. She liked artificial because she said they never die.

She lost my Grandfather in 1947 to Stomach Cancer, and she had a hard life raising her five children on her own.
