May 29, 1934 - June 17, 2021
Alfredo Alvarado, long time resident of Moses Lake, passed away at his home in the presence of his family on Thursday, June 17th, 2021. Freddie, as he was known, was an amazing husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was born on May 29th, 1934 in Progreso, TX to his parents Guadalupe and Tomasa Alvarado. In the early fifties, along with his 3 siblings, his family moved to Mabton, Washington where they worked as migrant workers traveling to California, Texas and back to Mabton. He married the love of his life, Blanca Platas in Riverside, CA on November 4th, 1961. Shortly thereafter, he became a foreman for the Hops in Mabton but eventually Freddie and Blanca moved to Moses Lake, WA where he became a truck driver. In 1962, they had their first child David and in 1967 they had their daughter Lisa. Freddie enjoyed providing for his family and he loved to visit his extended family in Mabton every Memorial Day weekend. He would take a stroll through the hop fields, visit the graveside of his parents to put flowers and visit his Tio Pedro and Tia Juanita. He was very much an Alvarado as he hurried through the visits with friends and family. Freddie was an avid Seattle Mariner fan, especially the teams of the late 90’s but most importantly, he absolutely loved his two grandsons, Brandon and Bryan. Brandon was his “wedine” and Bryan was his mini-me, whom he called, “chiquitin” and his beautiful granddaughter Mariah whom he called his Naya. Freddie is preceded in death by his parents, Guadalupe and Tomasa Alvarado, his brothers, Victor and Jesse Alvarado, and sister, Oralia Baltazar, and nephews, Noe, Sam and Danny. He is survived by his beautiful wife of nearly 60 years, Blanca and his son David (Natalie) Alvarado and Lisa (Larry) Sanchez and his three grandchildren, Brandon, Bryan and Mariah. Freddie will be missed greatly by all of his family and friends but we rejoice that because of his faith, he is now in the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ.
