Freddie was a graduate of Catholic High School and attended LSU. He served in the Louisiana National Guard. Freddie was a retired purchasing agent for Allied Chemical and later worked in the same capacity for Fluor Corporation. In 1955, Freddie married his beloved Catherine Decoteau, with whom he raised six children. They were married for 41 years until her passing in 1996. Surviving Freddie are his sons and daughters-in-law, Keith and Teri (Roy) Copponex, Gregory and Elaine (Deville) Copponex, Clint Copponex and Missy Perry, and Bart and Teri (Perry) Copponex; daughters and sons-in-law, Charmagne and Paul Sagona, and Sherri and Robert L.

Freddie was an avid LSU Tiger football fan, having had the same bloc of season tickets for over 50 years, right above those of best friends Burt and Maxine Helouin. He and "Cat" never missed a home game in their younger days, and passed the tradition on to their children and grandchildren, some who still occupy those same seats today.
