Moe was a member of the U. S. Army, stationed in Ft. Bliss, where he developed his love of Texas. In 1963 he married the love of his life Renate Freid. He and his family settled in Manchaca, Texas in 1974, after moving from East Meadow, New York. He was a successful entrepreneur, starting Moe Freid Marble and Granite in 1976. Moe was as unique as his trademark beret and overalls; utilizing his humor and personal touch with everyone, and anyone he met. He leaves his creative fingerprints on many of the historic structures and residences in Central Texas.

Moe was a selfless man who always put others first. He was a beloved member of the community, and found pure joy in the small things in life like working his ranch and taking care of his many beloved dogs, cattle and other animals. He will be greatly missed by all.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the many friends that stood by them over the last three weeks while Moe was hospitalized. Your love and support was truly felt. Our sincere thanks to the dedicated nursing staff at Seton Medical Center ICU who took care of Moe with love and compassion. We are forever grateful.
