Robert Freeman

October 3, 1947 — February 5, 2015

Robert W. Freeman, age 67, died unexpectedly on Thursday, February 5, 2015, due to complications after surgery. Bob was born in Janesville, Wisconsin on October 3, 1947, to the late Ronald and Katherine Freeman and resided in Appleton. He married Phyllis Johnson in Janesville on September 6, 1969, and they spent 45 years together. Bob worked at General Motors for 35 years until his retirement in November of 2003.

Bob was an avid golfer and loved golfing with his sons and grandsons. He had many good times playing in the two golf leagues at Mid-Vallee Golf Course. Like his father, Bob was a lifelong Chicago Bears fan, and he enjoyed many summer evenings taking in ball games of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. In past years, Bob loved to travel to play golf in Southern California, Arizona, and Florida. His favorite trips were touring Alaska and most recently, spending a few weeks in the National Parks of the Rocky Mountains. Bob was loved dearly by his family and friends, and he will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife, Phyllis Freeman; sons, Todd (Terri Huber) Freeman of Appleton and Rob (Erin Hamlett) Freeman of Winnebago, Illinois; grandchildren: Hayden, Brigham, and Ella Freeman of Appleton and Tobin, Lily, and Eli Freeman of Winnebago. Bob was preceded in death by his parents and parents-in-law, Harold and Jean Johnson.
