Obituary of Robert R. Freeman

Robert R. “Bob” Freeman passed away of cancer on April 19, 2024, in Olympia, Washington, his home for over 35 years.  He was born February 5, 1945, to Howard J. and Anna Marie Freeman in Wanamassa, New Jersey.


Bob graduated from New Jersey’s Asbury Park High School and served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.  He was a proud veteran.  He married the late Mary Lou Pyott in 1967 in Wanamassa, and later married Tina Edwards in Olympia (1989-2001).


Professionally, he was a Correctional Sargent for the Washington Department of Corrections at McNeil Island Corrections Center.  He retired in 2007, after 30 years of service. 


Bob was a great storyteller and had a quick wit.  He was always willing to lend a helping hand. Among his hobbies and interests were horseback riding, cruising on his Harley Davidson Road King motorcycle, and spending time with family and friends.  He also loved his dogs and cats and attending Native American pow wows.


Bob is survived by his former wife, Tina Edwards; sons, Robert R. Freeman Jr. and James J. Freeman; stepson, Matthew Muth; stepdaughters, Tammi Clawson, Kyle Moore, and Jessica Muth; and four grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, and brother, Howard J. Freeman.
