Alfredo P. Flores, 72, of Boling passed away on Saturday, May 7, 2022 in Sugar Land following a lengthy illness. Fred, as he was known to all, was born on October 16, 1949 in New Gulf to the late Cristobal Flores and Juana Perez Flores.
Fred was a welder by trade and a gentleman farmer. He was a lifelong member of St John the Baptist Catholic Church in Hungerford. His strong faith was apparent in the way he lived his life.
He enjoyed welding and creating metal art pieces. He raised a garden and would share his bounty with all his neighbors, family and friends. He raised cattle and had his special miniature pony named “Blossom”. Fred’s advice, jokes, and stories of our family history will always be remembered and greatly missed. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, infant Alfredito Flores and Alonzo Flores, sisters; Feliciana Rodriguez and Paula Flores, nephew Thomas Valdez and nieces Katherine Rodriguez and Brenda Flores.
Fred is survived by his sisters; Maria E. Valdez, Sister Guadalupe Flores, Manuela Lopez and Antonia Arizpe and husband, Larry, sister-in-law, Teresa Flores; 14 nieces, 14 nephews, numerous great-nieces, great-nephews, close family and friends.
