Fred Buitrago passed away on Monday, August 14th, at the full age of 80 years old.
Fred was born on May 3rd, 1937 in Jinotepe, Nicaragua. Son of Benjamin Buitrago and Maria Del Pilar, Fred moved to San Francisco at the age of 18 where he was surrounded by his large, loving family. He was the beloved partner of Pearl Rivera for 36 years. Father of Cindy (Reid), Roy, and Martin, as well as a grandfather of 5, and a great grandfather of 6.
Fred worked at Safeway for over 25 years, however his true passion was in antiques. He used his keen eye and persistence to spot fine pieces to add to his collection. He especially enjoyed the history behind those pieces and appreciated the craftsmanship that went into them.
Fred’s warmth, charm, and humor made him a friend to all those who shared time with him. Nowhere was this brought out more than when he was with his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews who so caringly tended to him towards the end of his life.
