Robert Hamilton Freeman, affectionately known as “Bob,” was born to Charles and Maude Vaughan Freeman, on June 4, 1929. Bob was the eighth of eleven children. He joined his dearly departed wife, Jean, on April 9, 2020.

Bob attended elementary and secondary schools in Union, New Jersey. He graduated Union High School in 1947 and joined the military upon graduation. He served as a proud member of the U.S. Army in the Korean War, Europe, and Japan. Upon leaving the military, he continued to serve his country by working for Harry, Barrington, & Owens (HBO), where he was an assistant in the admissions department of Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Washington D.C., supporting collection efforts. He later worked as a collection and receivable accounts supervisor, until his retirement in 2006. Staying in touch, he made sure to attend his 50th high school class reunion.

During this time, Bob met his beautiful wife, Jean. They were married on August 21, 1965, and spent 57 wonderful years together in the District of Columbia and Maryland areas. After retirement, they had the pleasure of traveling to many Caribbean Islands, Jamaica and Bermuda, in addition to California, Alabama, and of course, New Jersey.

Many of his friends and family will always remember him as a quiet yet strong-willed man who enjoyed life. He also served as an usher at his church for many years.

Bob is predeceased by Ruth Margaret Williams, Gilbert Freeman, Julien Edward Freeman (Rose), Grace Thelma Walker Freeman, Philip Earl Freeman (Beatrice), Milton Henry Freeman (Arnolda), William Rosco Freeman (Evelyn), Donald Vaughan Freeman (John), and Gerald Thomas Freeman, Sr., (Julia).

Bob is survived by: sister, Bernice Cleona Gladden (Elliott); brother, Louis Stanley Freeman (Thelma); and God son, Robert C. Freeman (Debra). Numerous nieces and nephews throughout the United States mourn his departure.
