Freddy "PaPa Dawg" Pelts

April 29, 1951 - February 28, 2019

Freddy Pelts, age 67, passed away February 28, 2019. He was born in Wichita, Kansas on April 29, 1951 to Fred and Maxine Pelts, and raised in Alva, Oklahoma. In 1974, he moved to Columbus where he joined his father in forming Pelts & Son Construction Company. On April 8, 1989, he married the love of his life, Cindy Sue (Guthmann) Pelts and on October 17, 2000 he welcomed the birth of his only son, Tyler Dakoma Pelts. Towards the end of his construction career he worked for Frank Hinson at Custom Redesign and formed a very close friendship with him.
Freddy lived his life as a dedicated friend, uncle, brother, husband, and father. He was an avid fisherman, who you'd often find on the lake with the "yard dogs" and his son, fishing for the biggest bass there was. When he wasn't on the lake, you could find him with his "yard dog" friends whom they lovingly referred to him as "PaPa Dawg", having a good old time. He was the life of the party, and he loved every minute of it.
Freddy will be remembered as the guy who would take the shirt off his back for anyone. He'll be remembered for his generosity, his humor, his friendship, and so much more. He'll certainly be remembered for his love of Oklahoma and OU Sooners. Above all, his biggest and proudest accomplishment was his son, Tyler Pelts, who he loved with all his heart.
Freddy is survived by his wife, Cindy Sue (Guthmann) Pelts; his beloved child Tyler Dakoma Pelts; his loving sister Bonnie Roberts (husband Tim), sister Janice Morgan (husband Eric) and his brother-in-law's & sister-in-law's Tommy Guthmann (wife Susan); Brenda Skutca (husband Jimmy); Sheri Schmitt (husband Mark); James Guthmann (wife Joyce); and his numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents Fred Glenn Pelts and Maxine Pelts.
Visitation will be held on Sunday March 3, 2019 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm, and Monday March 4, 2019 at 9:00am to 2:00pm at Henneke Funeral Home in Columbus, Texas.
Funeral services will be held Monday March 4, 2019 at 2:00pm at the Henneke Funeral Home in Columbus, Texas.
Honorary pallbearers will be the "The Yard Dogs".
