Sheryl I. Freeman

Rodney M. Freeman
6/26/1916 - 4/22/2015


Sheryl and Rod were married 66 years and in love for all of them.
Sheryl was born in Detroit, Michigan and moved to California with her family in the early 1940's. She worked as an escrow officer until she married Rod and helped with the family business.
Rod was born in Kansas and moved to Lindsay, California in the early 1920's. He met his first wife, Marcella, in the late 1930's and had two sons, Doug and Dick. With the outbreak of WWII, Rod was drafted into the US Navy and served his country proudly. In 1946, Rod met the love of his life, Sheryl, and they married in 1948. They were married for 66 wonderful years and had three sons, Dirk, Brett and Reed.
Sheryl and Rod started their first business, Lid Printers, and after many years, ventured into the antique business in Lomita. After selling both businesses, their retirement gave them plenty of time to spend traveling, playing golf, camping at Twin Lakes (which they did every summer for more than 55 years) and sharing many fun parties with family and friends in the neighborhood.
Sheryl and Rod were predeceased by sons, Dirk and Brett. They are survived by sons, Doug (Karen), Dick and Reed (Charlynn), grandchildren Shanda, Kira, Lanae, Joshua, Jake, Mandy, Eddie, Josh, Jared, Troy, Cody, and Christopher, 24 great-grandchildren, Rod's brother, Mac, and all their families along with many, many friends and neighbors they considered as their extended family.
Should you wish to make any donations in their memory, Midnight Mission (www.midnightmission.org) and Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriorproject.org), were two of their favorite charities.
There will be a gathering at their home on Saturday, May 16, 2015 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm for a celebration of their lives; a time to honor, share and remember. Please sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
