Wendell "Bud" Freytag

January 23, 1958 — April 22, 2023

A faithful loyal man of God, Wendell “Buddy”Freytag went to be with our Lord and Savior on April 22, 2023 after a short battle with cancer. He was born on January 23, 1958 to loving parents, Gene and Jane Freytag and dedicated his life to his family, friends and coworkers. Buddy made friends his whole life and was there for anybody that needed him. He was a devoted son, father, and brother to his family. If Buddy said he would be there, he was there.He grew up in Chicago, and when he moved to Sunbright Tennessee in his early teenage years, he fell in love with country living! He provided for his family by doing work in road construction and was with LoJac for over 30 years and made a career in what he loves doing. Buddy loved the farm life and dedicated his time away from his job to his farm. He and his father and brothers would spend hours in the fields, and on other projects which all of them would work together to get things accomplished. He loved  his dog, Telle, and where he went, she went. He raised her from a puppy for six years, and she was his favorite companion. Buddy  gave his life to the Lord when he was a teenager and will forever be watching over us in heaven, with our creator. He was preceded in death by his father, Wendell Eugene Freytag, brother, Randy Freytag and his uncle Jim freytag. Left to cherish his memory. His loving mother, Sarah Jane Freytag sisters, April (Allen) Jones, Rebecca Douglas, Lori (Ken)Makins brothers, David (Lou) Freytag, Daniel Freytag (Tammy) and Tim (Teresa) Freytag. His two children, Kristy (David ) Johnson and  Wendell Freytag Jr. His grandchildren, Madison, Izaiah, and Eli and his nieces and nephews that will all miss him dearly!
