JACK FREIBURGHOUSE October 7, 1921 ~ February 9, 2014 Jack Freiburghouse passed away on February 9, 2014 at his home in Red Bluff. Jack was born in Magnet, Nebraska on October 7, 1921. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife of 69 years, Rosalie, sisters Alice Boynton, Mae McCarty, Bonnie Lackey and brother, Ralph Freiburghouse. He is survived by his daughter, Pat Brown (Bob), grandchildren, Russ Northrop (Christine), Kimberly Northrop (Eric), and numerous nieces and nephews. Jack proudly served his country in the U.S. Army Air Corps as a bombardier on the B-17. He was stationed in England and flew 31 missions before his discharge as a First Lt. in 1945. He received the Distinguished Flying Cross and many other decorations and citations. He met the love of his life, Rosalie, in Laredo Texas while he was stationed nearby and, after a few short weeks, they were married prior to his shipping overseas. They ultimately settled in Walnut Creek where they built their home and lived for 40 years. Jack was a lather by trade. He loved to fish in earlier years and loved to work with wood - whether building furniture or carving his beautiful ducks. Jack never considered himself a hero - but his family did. He was a proud, hard-working man who loved his family. In later years he was a loving caregiver to his dear wife, Rosalie. We will miss him everday but we were so blessed to have had this man in our lives. Services will be held in Igo at the Northern California Veterans Cemetery on Friday, March 21st at 12:30 p.m
