George J. Freeman III, 67, Warsaw, passed away quietly at 5:05 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 14, 2021, in Warsaw at Kosciusko Community Hospital.
Born on Dec. 8, 1953, in Bergen County, N.J., he was the eldest of seven children raised in the family home. He grew up in New Jersey and attended school at Bergenfield High School. On July 23, 1974, at the age of 20, he was united in marriage to Lorraine Burke in Spring Valley, N.Y. The pair made their home in New Jersey for many years before moving to Warsaw in 2011.
A machinist by trade, he spent many years with Biomet. He worked for Zimmer Biomet in Warsaw and genuinely enjoyed the technology involved in his job. More personally, he enjoyed golf and liked music of all kinds, especially the Beatles. Sometimes shy, he was a private person with a laid-back personality.
Those who survive with memories to cherish include his wife of more than 46 years: Lorraine Freeman, Warsaw; daughter: Kristina Freeman, Warsaw; and son: Timothy Freeman, Warsaw. Also surviving are a sister: Nancy (Michael) Wettje; and brothers: Jimmy Freeman, David (Tracy) Freeman, Billy Freeman and Michael (JoAnn) Freeman. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in passing by a brother: Donald Freeman.
