Obituary for Fred Xavier Bautista

July 28, 1945 - November 5, 2017
Austin, Texas | Age 72


Fred Xavier Bautista joined his loved ones in heaven on November 4, 2017. He was a beloved man who lived his life for others and made countless sacrifices for his friends and family. He spent his final years living with a heart filled with love and happiness, as he was consistently surrounded by his two beautiful grandchildren who loved him deeply and demonstrated it to him every day. He was an amazing auto body man, a third degree black belt, a water skier and scuba diver, a frustrated golfer, a softball player and a loyal longhorn fan. He did not fear his own death, but he spent every day trying to prolong his life so he could spend just one more day with his beloved Aria and Pearson. He leaves a legacy of love and sacrifice that will forever be in our hearts.

He is proceeded in death by his brother, Rudy Bautista; his mother, Hortencia Bautista; and his father, Rudy Bautista, Sr.

He is survived by his older sister, Clelia Hernandez; and baby brother, Rueben Bautista; his sons, Aron X. Bautista and Mike Herber; his daughter-in-law, Marley Bautista; and his little reasons for living, Aria G. and Pearson X. Bautista.

Viewing will be held at Weed-Corley-Fish at 6:00 pm on Friday, November 10th, followed by a rosary and service at 7:00 pm.

A Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 am on Saturday, November 11th at St. Austin's Catholic Church followed by a celebration of his life at the home of the Bautista family, where Grumpa spent his final years surrounded by love.
