Freddie was born on December 7th, 1942 in Karnes City, TX to Louis and Theresa Bujnoch. He grew up working in the family business and was very active in many high school and college activities and sports. He was a proud brother of the Sigma Rho Fraternity. In 1980 he moved to West Texas and continued the family tradition and opened Bujnoch’s Café with his brother Bill in Midland, TX. During this time, he met and married his true love Sammie. In one marriage ceremony he became father of three, grandpa to one and uncle to many. In June of 1982 they welcomed their baby boy Louis making their family complete. Freddie enjoyed cooking, spending time with his family, telling embellished stories of the past and spoiling all the grandbabies. He never met a stranger and always made everyone feel welcomed. His kind heart, gentle soul, and warm smile will never be forgotten. His cheerful greetings and unmatched personality will truly be missed. The love he had for his family and friends will never be surpassed.
