George J. Freeman III, 67 of Warsaw, Indiana passed away quietly on Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 05:05 a.m. in Warsaw at Kosciusko Community Hospital.
Born on December 8, 1953 in Bergen County, New Jersey, George 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 twenty, George was united in marriage to Lorraine Burke in Spring Valley, New York. The pair made their home in New Jersey for many years before moving to Warsaw in 2011.
A machinist by trade, George 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 of Warsaw; daughter, Kristina Freeman of Warsaw and son, Timothy Freeman of Warsaw. Also surviving are 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.
