Freeman joined the United States Army in 1966 serving four years. He met and married his
wife, Marianne Ullmann in Boblingen, Germany. After their first child was born, they
crossed the Atlantic to Jacksonville, Florida for a brief stay. They ultimately ended up in
Grants, New Mexico. This is where he was employed with the Anaconda Uranium Mine as
an underground mechanic. He decided to venture out and explore the art of trapping for
many years. He moved on from trapping and with his life partner, opened New Mexico
Recycling in Milan, New Mexico. Forty years later, the business is still thriving. To add
more suspense in Freeman’s life, they decided to open Indian Trails trading Post located in
Grants, New Mexico. A business operating on twenty-seven years. Freeman was a staple
in the community, loved his family, gave generously, and we will forever miss him dearly.
Rest in Peace father, brother, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, friend and Veteran!
