He started out in construction building homes which led to a career in construction management overseeing the building of offices and hospitals all over the country.

He then became the owner and operator of the local Floor Coverings International franchise. He retired as a manager from the Home Depot in Mechanicsburg.

He enjoyed watching the Phillies, fishing, gardening (taking pride in his Hibiscus flowers), working on projects around the house with music on in the background, old cars, and watching the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction. He loved spending time with his family, adored his grandchildren and his constant companion, his Dachshund Woody.

He was born January 30, 1946 in Camden, NJ to the late William Neuby and Jane (Shill) Freeman. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Jane and son, Michael.

He is survived by his wife, Rebecca Ann (Keesey) Freeman; son, James Freeman (Samantha) of Acworth, GA; daughter, Mara Stewart (Bill) of Norfolk, VA; and grandchildren, Ryan Freeman, Adrienne Freeman, and Tucker Reiber.
