"Freddie T" Mathis

Fredrick Riley Mathis, 79, of Gastonia, NC, born August 11, 1933, in Gaffney, S.C. to Will and Retha Mathis, moved on from this life Friday, January 4, 2013, at his daughter's house in Charlotte. He is the proud father of Gordon Dale, Danny Lee, Mark Henry, Dessie Rebecca, Denise Mae and Sonya Anita; grandfather of Crystal, Danny, Barbara, Lindsay, Joshua, Logan, Jonathan, Jeremy, Mitchell, Michael, Benjamin, Alan and Blair; great-grandfather of Owen, Patrick, Leigha, James, and Oakley; father-in-law of Laura Mathis, Mark Putnam, Russell Yeomans, and Christine Thompson, in which he is survived by all. He is also survived by the mother of his children Joan Carolyn Fox-Mathis and sister Hiley Dixon. "Freddy T" was an army veteran and retiree from Duff Norton Company in Charlotte. He is best remembered for his desire to "keep things simple" and even more so in his last days. He truly never met a stranger and was willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed one. The family would like to thank the remarkable caregivers at Presbyterian Hospital Huntersville, daddy's hospice nurse Sarah and Dr. Shope for their wonderful care. We would also like to acknowledge daddy's friends Homer, Ruth, Glenda, and Willie that made his life full. And to Debbie, who is his niece, but has been more like another daughter, thank you for loving daddy. -
