Freddie Eugene McGinnis was born on March 17, 1945 in Checotah, OK to Fred & Naomi (Hightower) McGinnis. Freddie was married to Shirley Westbury for over two decades and had two children together…they remained close friends to the very end. Fred enjoyed fishing and hunting with his family. We are saddened to say the world lost the “Last Cowboy”!
