Leroy was raised Catholic as all his sisters and brothers were. They attended the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, in Crosby, Harris County, Texas. The Frederick homestead was on 17914 Old Beaumont Hwy. (HWY. 90-A) in Houston, Harris, Texas.

Later in his life he was baptized as Methodist. He helped build the Liberty Hill Methodist Church, in Liberty Hill, Williamson County, Texas. Daddy & (second wife)Barbara resided at 509 Marblehead Drive, Dayton, , Liberty, Texas and Percilla, Houston County, Texas.

Burial will follow in Augusta Cemetery under the direction of Bailey & Foster, of Grapeland. They resided in New Orleans, Louisiana, Dayton, Texas, Grapeland, and Percilla, Texas.

Leroy was the son of Charles "Charlie" F. Frederick & Annie Elizabeth "Bessie" (Mazac) Frederick of Williamson County, and Harris County, Texas.

His ancestors emigrated from Moravia in 1892. He had two sisters, Agnes Rainie "Renie" (Frederick) Christ and Juanita Elizabeth "Punkin" (Frederick) Christ, both of them resided on 9014, 9018 Talcott Road, Houston, Harris County, Texas 77049.

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

Leroy married to my mother , 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 married Barbara Moore Faulk in 15 Sept. 1969, in Dayton, Texas. She called him Lee.

Barbara had two children, Jeanna and Joey Faulk, from a previous marriage. Daddy helped raise and support them.

Leroy & Barbara had no children from that marriage, which lasted for thirty seven years.

Leroy served in the U.S. Navy during World War II aboard Merchant Marine supply ships for troops. He served in the U.S. Navy from Jan. 1944, until May 18, 1946. He was shipped out to San Diego, California.

Military Service Records show:
[Frederick, Leroy Eugene, service number was 5772117, Seaman 1C, V-6 USNR, Sheldon, Texas.] He was Honorably discharged. He was sent back to Camp Wallace, TX. after World War II ended.

Daddy worked for Brown & Root, Inc, 4100 Clinton Drive, Houston, Texas for [46] forty six years. Started out as a Mechanic's helper, and retired as Asst. Supt. of the Automotive Dept.

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.

"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!" - Tommy Mayhood - Jan. 24, 2014

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.
