Luis Alfredo "Freddy" Núñez

August 28, 1950 — April 24, 2021

Luis Alfredo “Freddy” Núñez passed away peacefully at his home, surrounded by his family on April 24, 2021. A native of Santurce, Puerto Rico, he was born on August 28, 1950 to the late José Antonio Núñez, Sr. and Carmen Maria Robles.

He served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War and attained the rank of Specialist. He completed his university studies and received a Bachelor’s degree with a concentration in Marketing. He also completed a degree in Theology from the International Institute of the Americas. He worked at the Hathaway factory in Puerto Rico, the Carters Factory in Harlingen, Texas, and later served as a Chaplain at Valley Baptist Medical Center.

Luis enjoyed working with people and was a friend to everyone he met. He always provided Godly guidance and taught his family how to apply the word of God in their everyday life. Freddy loved the Lord and had a servant’s heart, which was evident in his dedication to his church and his Chaplain ministry at Valley Baptist Medical Center.

Luis is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Ana Ivette Núñez; children, Luis S. (Lindsey) Núñez, Angel (Samantha) Núñez, Annette (David) Muniz, and Lynnette Núñez; grandchildren, Treston Núñez, Tyler Núñez, and Lana Perez; brother, Jose Antonio (Myrna) Núñez, Jr.; nephews, Jay (Luissette) Núñez and Nestor (Sheyla) Núñez; niece, Lissette Núñez; and numerous friends.
