Howard Freeman

February 11, 1942 — April 1, 2024

On Monday, April 1, 2024, Howard Freeman, Jr. (lovingly know as Jr.) closed his eyes to receive that much needed rest. Howard was born on February 11, 1942, to Ruby Lee Simmons and Howard Freeman in Greenville, Alabama. A graduate of Technical Jr High School in Omaha, NE, Howard was a dedicated member of the Masonic Temple Lodge #2 for over four decades. His commitment to the organization allowed him to reach the level of Wishful Master. A lover of sports, blues, fishing, hunting, entertainment, and avid Pit Master allowed him to enjoy life to the fullest. There was no doubt about his love for his family and close friends, as he was always there for them. A man of vision, wisdom, and a mentor, he lived his life unapologetically. There could never be enough adjectives to describe THE MAN, HIS LIFE AND HIS LEGACY of Howard Freeman Jr.
